What is a SOUP event?

SOUP events open the door for possibilities. It is an innovative crowdfunding idea that was first tested in Detroit after the city went bust.

The concept is simple: people show up, donate a small amount, and listen to three or four people present an idea to improve the local community. Each presenter speaks for four minutes and cannot use Powerpoint or anything similar. The audience can then ask four questions to each presenter.

Then, soup and drink is served. People discuss the ideas they heard and then vote for their favourite.

The winner, based on democracy and critical conversation, gets the donations as prize money to fund their idea. They promise to come back to a future SOUP to share progress with the community.

The winner also gets the vote of confidence from the crowd as well as a new crowd of people with an interest and passion for their idea.

How can I take part?
