Event description

Description

Engage SOUP offers the opportunity to:

  • geek out over someone else's idea, or

  • let others hear what you are building or working on.

This micro-granting event offers an opportunity to give and get the financial capital to move projects forward that wouldn't have otherwise been seen or invested in by traditional means.




This member-exclusive

IS YOUR NIGHT OF GROWN-UP “SHOW AND TELL” AS A BUILDER, MAKER, TINKERER, DOER.




PRESENT

SOUP is a great way to raise money, build community support, and get connections to local resources that can help you carry out your project.

*Submissions are due by 5 PM on Tues. 7/23 for the 8/6 event.




ATTEND

People who attend literally toss their $$$ into the pot - which gets them a cup of soup, a tear of bread - and a vote!



HOW IT WORKS

Every SOUP dinner consists of four presentations on projects related to community spaces, food sustainability, social justice, social entrepreneurship, education, film, technology, and more. These could be new business ideas, side projects, or existing programs that need feedback, a new perspective, or help to get to the next step.


PRESENTERS

Take 5 minutes to share their project or idea.

No slides allowed. This keeps the playing field even, and the evening fun, light, and focused on storytelling or demonstrating the product.

AUDIENCE

5 minutes are allotted for questions after each presenter.

No compounded questions or “helpful” comments, please. I just keeps things simple.

DISCUSS & VOTE

After the presentations, audience members discuss and debate before voting on the project they think makes the greatest impact on the community it aims to serve.

AWARD WINNER

Whichever presenter gets the most votes wins the pot o’ cash collected at the door!


Engage SOUP is based on the Detroit SOUP model - a micro-granting dinner celebrating and supporting creative projects in Detroit.
