POP ideas are pleased to be working with the Big Lottery Fund to provide the opportunity for local organisations to
present their project ‘idea’ to a multifunder panel, showing the difference your activities and services are making to
the communities of Plymouth.
This whole day event will also provide the opportunity to obtain information on the support available locally to get your
great idea funded and hear from others about their plans in Plymouth.
As well as being a great networking opportunity for those attending and those pitching, it will also provide an
opportunity to understand more about the local priorities of the panel!
Part 1 – Pitch Your Project
The morning will consist of a ‘pitch’ style session where attendees will be expected to present a short outline of their
project, lasting no more than 5 minutes.
No power points presentations are allowed, but you may bring volunteers or props that can convey the key aspects of
what you do!
PLEASE ONLY 1 PITCH FROM EACH ORGANISATION. If you are booking for 2 people with 1 pitch then please select 1 pitching ticket and 1 observing ticket.
An opportunity for groups to network, whilst the panel discuss the morning’s pitches and agree next steps.
(Lunch is not provided, you are welcome to bring your own or there are several cafes near by, including the award winning Column Bakehouse on site.)
Part 2 – Workshops & Funding Support
Attendees will be able to access further information throughout the afternoon where a series of workshops and one to
ones with funders will be available. These are designed to improve understanding of the application process for
funder’s current funding programmes or how to progress your great idea.
Pitch Places are limited and early booking is recommended.
All are welcome to attend the event to network and meet with Funders
