It could be you joining the 16 winning projects Sheffield People have funded, £1006 Grant is the record to beat:) so far.
The next live pitch night is on Thursday 13th June– at The CRUCIBLE! YEP YOU READ THAT RIGHT! In case you did’nt know – we are now based at the world famous CRUCIBLE…
You must apply to pitch by Midnight on Friday 31st May and will be notified if you have been chosen to live pitch by email by Monday 3rd June. You will need to be available for training – which will take place for one hour between 10.00 and 18.00 on Saturday and Sunday 8th and 9th 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!
