It doesn’t have to be crazy, but consider that there are 150-200 people who come to the dinner. Anything from soup, salad, dessert, to your favorite meal. Remember that you get 60 seconds to share about ANYTHING you are working on in the city. Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
SOUP is a project of the Build Institute, an idea activator and small business accelerator focused on grassroots community entrepreneurship. At this dinner, you will have the opportunity to learn more about Build and shop from local Detroit businesses. Apply to vend: tinyurl.com/vendatsoup

SOUP is a great way to raise money, build community support and get connections to local resources that can help you carry out your project.

**To sustain our dinners, we are asking for $10 donations, $5 of which will go to the winner and $5 will go to support ongoing dinners. A lot goes into hosting every SOUP event- we pay the crew that preps and cleans the space for us, we compensate the artist for their performance, and overall have associated costs to organize these diners. We need your help to continue to run our events. As always, anyone is welcome at SOUP, at whatever price they can afford.
