What’s in it for you? Successful applications chosen to present at the next Soup Ottawa event will have a chance to win funding for their project (funding varies on attendance). By being a presenter, you will also have a great opportunity to generate awareness about your project, receive feedback, field questions, network, and possibly connect with future partners.
The application process is simple, and fairly quick. For more details on how to apply, please see: www.soupottawa.ca/apply/.

How does it work? Soup Ottawa is a micro-grant event that focuses on two things: good soup and funding great community projects. For $10, every attendee gets a bowl of quality soup and bread from a local provider and one voting spoon. The community project presenter who receives the most votes wins every penny from the pool of cash. So if 100 people show up, that’s $1000 for the winning idea!

Soup Ottawa’s next event “Celebrate our Future” will take place Monday, January 23, 2017 at the Gladstone Theatre.
