Another wonderful morning of inspiration and ambition at 1 Million Cups Baltimore!

This month, 1 Million Cups Baltimore enjoyed presentations from Food Forecast, focused on solutions for food availability during disasters, and NoseKandy, a Baltimore City-born fragrance company.

The first presenter was UMBC’s Lauren Clay, associate professor and chair of emergency health services. She pitched her startup, Food Forecast, which was recently awarded a grant from the NSF to further develop a sociocultural model called Food Environment in Disasters (FED) and other tools to improve the understanding and monitoring of food availability, acceptability, and accessibility during disasters. Learn More

The second presentation was delivered by Ashon Williams, who offers unique and creative fragrances for perfumes and colognes, body washes, and candles through his startup, NoseKandy. Ashon wowed the audience with his compelling scents, branding and personal charm. Learn More

Thank you to Kevin Fulmer, Director of the Alex. Brown Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at UMBC, for hosting.
