Call for projects seeking funders | Edinburgh Soup

edinburgh soup buttonEDINBURGH SOUP is an innovative new event to help fund creative and community projects in Edinburgh. Guests pay a donation of £5 to attend. They get soup, they get music, but the focus of the night is the project pitches. Four invited speakers get five minutes to tell the audience about a project for which they need funding. No video, no Powerpoint, just a straight pitch. At the end, the audience vote on which idea they like best, and the winner gets the pot of donations. The winner then returns to a future SOUP to tell us how they’ve done.
