Welcome to BrightonSoup

Anyone can apply to BrightonSoup. You just need an idea or project that benefit the people of Brighton & Hove City. You don’t need formal plans, be an organisation or charity. You just need a great idea

Oh, and be willing to stand up in a room full of very friendly people and tell them about it (or have a friend do it :)). Don’t worry, we give you training and support you through the process.

On the night, if enough people are interested and excited about your project, they will vote you their money. The great thing is that even if you don’t win the vote you can still make great connections and get support and help anyway.

What is BrightonSoup?

  • Listen to 4 quick passionate pitches.
  • Eat some delicious food.
  • Chat about and to the pitchers.
  • Vote for your favourite project.
  • Enjoy the entertainment until the winner is announced
    – who gets ALL the ticket money.

It’s a fun, community, Dragon’s Den, where you get to be a Dragon.

Why Soup? It’s a cheap, healthy and very tasty way of feeding people so all the door money can go to the winning project.

Inspired by detroitsoup.com, we’re doing it Brighton & Hove style.

Want a ticket? Want to pitch?

Come along and be a dragon – a Soup Dragon, if you will 🙂

Team Soup

Brighton & Hove County Council were the first to support us and were crucial in helping us develop and grow. More recently the Sussex Community Foundation has helped us consolidate our growth and supported our trustee development. We thank them both very much.
