Description

Aberdeen SOUP returns for the 11th event on the 3 November 2019 18:00 - 20:30

What is Aberdeen Soup?

Aberdeen SOUP is a crowdfunding initiative celebrating and supporting entrepreneurial, community and creative projects in Aberdeen. For a donation £5, attendees receive food and a vote and hear up to four presentations from local people doing innovative work in and around Aberdeen. These can range from art, urban agriculture, social justice, start-ups, social enterprise, entrepreneurs, education, technology and more.

The format is simple;

FIVE minute presentations,

from

FOUR local people,

followed by

THREE questions from the audience.


At the event, attendees eat, talk, share resources, enjoy some entertainment and vote on the project they think will benefit the local area the most. That projects then gets 100% of the money raised on the night.

You'll enjoy some live entertainment as well and we encourage you to BYOB (corkage is by donation to the winners total) and BYOS...bring you own spoon!

At the end of the night, the ballots are counted and the winner goes home with all of the money raised on the night to carry out their project. Winners come back to a future SOUP dinner to report their project’s progress.
