Event description

Description

Are you inspired?

Do you have a business idea that you think will benefit your local community? Want to see if it’s achievable?

Come along to a fun & casual evening, enjoy a bowl of soup, and pitch your business idea to fellow contestants. Hear from local experts in the business sector who can help make your business dream a reality!

Thurrock Soup is an innovative and inspirational series of events that help generate transformational social enterprise and business ideas from local people and create a way for them to receive seed funding to help turn ideas into realities.

So, how does it work?

The process is very simple, everyone buys a bowl of soup and a roll for £5, the money goes into a pot, people pitch their ideas, then everyone votes on their favourite and the winner takes the money!

Once all the business ideas have been presented, attendees will vote for their favourite idea and the winner will be given the money taken as entry fees to use as capital to help their new enterprise. That’s right, winner takes all! – But if your idea doesn’t win, you will still have the opportunity to speak with business support organisations that can help get your business rolling.

The winners of the past two Thurrock Soups have reiceved £185 and £150 respectively to start their enterprsies. Read Thurrock Council’s press release on the inaugural event.
