Could you make good use of a no strings cash grant to bring to life your idea or to grow your business, products or services? Then Sheffield SOUP grants could be just what you need!
It could be you joining the 12 winning projects Sheffield People have funded, £860 Grant is the record to beat:) so far.
The next live pitch night is on Wednesday 27th June – with our new venue partner, St Mary’s on Bramall Lane. You must apply to pitch by Midnight on Thursday 7th June, and will be notified if you have been chosen to live pitch by email Monday 11th June. You will need to be available for training – which will take place for one hour between 10.00 and 18.00 on Saturday 16th June.
The grant is the sum of door donations Sheffield folk put in the pot, each donating a minimum of £5. Each donor receives one voting chip, and vote for their favourite idea after hearing all the pitches and having had opportunity to question the pitchers.. The winner takes all the donations! But, you have to be in it to win it.
To qualify to apply, you must reside in Sheffield, and your project, idea or business must take place in Sheffield. We do not put restrictions on age or ideas, or the type of idea. Applications are welcome from Community Groups, Charities, Individuals, Freelancers, Self Employed, Employed, Unemployed, big or small business. Shortlist Judges (Sheffield residents) vote for their favourite 4 applications – and the top 4 go through to live pitch night to compete to win the vote. It’s that simple.
The form is real quick and easy – so don’t be shy – give it a go!
