ABOUT SOUP

We are delighted to announce our latest Oxfordshire SOUP event, which will take place at the friendly time of:

Friday 8th December, from 11.00am - 1.00pm at Hampden House, Monument Park, Charlgrove

Grassroots funding at its finest, Oxfordshire SOUP is Crowdfunding meets Dragons Den for small businesses. SOUP is a global movement which enables communities to disrupt the status quo and raise small scale investment for new businesses or ideas they collectively vote for.

The format is simple. You come along, pay a small fee and listen to 3 or 4 ambitious businesses pitch their idea.

Pitchers each have the floor for up to four minutes, and must rely on their passion, their speaking abilities and the way their can articulate their business to win over the audience – no gadgets, give-aways or PowerPoint. The audience can then ask a maximum of four questions to try to establish which business is most worthy of investment.

With the presentations over, lunch is served. This is an opportunity for you to meet your fellow funders and mull over the ideas before choosing the business you feel is most worthy of your investment. You will vote by placing your token into the corresponding box.

The winning business gets to take home all the money taken at the door, a healthy financial sum from our sponsors, and a support package devised to help them support their plans for growth. The only promise we ask is that they will come back to our next event to report on their progress.

APPLICATION DEADLINE MIDNIGHT SUNDAY 26th NOVEMBER 2017
