About this event

A live crowdfunding event and community dinner. The Founders for the Future programme participants pitch their community business ideas. Everyone gets a bowl of soup, bread, and vote for their project.

All are invited to come to our Founders Soup! It's a brilliant way to support young adults in Devon setting up community businesses across the county, and gather with your community for a fantastic evening! Register for free and donate £5 or more on the door for a bowl of soup, bread, and a vote.

What is SOUP?

The idea is simple: For a suggested donation of £5 on the door, you get a bowl of soup made from locally sourced produce and a vote. During the evening the Founders for the Future participants will each deliver a five-minute pitch about their project, its community benefits and what the funding will support. Each pitch is then followed by four or five questions from the audience, and then the crowd votes. The winning project receives the takings from the door and pledges to share how they’ve used their funding at the next SOUP.

Where is SOUP?

Founders SOUP takes place at the beautiful Selgars Mill: a centre for the democratic economy, climate emergency and social change. Located between Uffculme and Willand, EX15 3DA.

Who are the 'Founders'?

Founders for the Future is a free startup programme for young adults in Devon: a new business incubator working with young adults in Devon, supporting them to create new enterprise ideas that secure a sustainable future for Devon’s local economy.

We support participants to set up their own enterprises with others, through workshops, residentials, 1:2:1 business consultancy, study visits, market development, a business fair, and grants.

More than just a business start up programme, the three-month programme puts young adults at the heart of Devon's economic development by focusing on building businesses that make an impact in communities and protect the local environment.

Founders for the Future is part of the Devon Social Entrepreneurs Programme led by the School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) in partnership with Devon Communities Together, Stir to Action and New Prosperity Devon. It is funded by the UK Government through the UK Community Renewal Fund, which is managed by Devon County Council within the Devon area.
