Aberdeen SOUP returns for a 7th time and we are delighted to invite you to attend our community crowdfunding evening.

In the spirit of making a change in the community, we have decided that this will be a BRING YOUR OWN SPOON event, if you forget you can have one on loan for the evening at a small cost of 50p.

Aberdeen SOUP is a crowdfunding initiative celebrating and supporting entrepreneurial, community and creative projects in Aberdeen. For a donation £5, attendees receive food and a vote and hear up to four presentations from local people doing innovative work in and around Aberdeen. These can range from art, urban agriculture, social justice, start-ups, social enterprise, entrepreneurs, education, technology and more.

The format is simple;

FIVE minute presentations, from
FOUR local people, followed by
THREE questions from the audience.

At the event, attendees eat, talk, share resources, enjoy some entertainment and vote on the project they think will benefit the local area the most.

We'll have some live entertainment as well and we encourage you to BYOB (corkage is by donation to the winners total)
At the end of the night, the ballots are counted and winner goes home with all of the money raised on the night to carry out their project. Winners come back to a future SOUP dinner to report their project’s progress.
