Thurrock Soup Event – Networking

Posted on: January 14, 2021

Thurrock Soup event, taking place virtually on 12th February, on Zoom. See attached the flyer. To book on please visit www.thurrockvsoup.eventbrite.co.uk, we will again send the Zoom link to everyone who books closer to the date.

Its Virtually Soup!

Thurrock Soup is a fun, relaxed evening where you can have the opportunity to pitch your business idea to fellow contestants, for the chance to win money for your idea!

Hear from local experts in the business sector who can help make your business dream a reality!

Thurrock Soup is an innovative and inspirational series of events that help generate transformational social enterprise and business ideas from local people and create a way for them to receive seed funding to help turn ideas into realities.

The event will take place online, on Zoom. Everyone who books will be sent a Zoom login link to join the meeting via email closer to the date.

Typically everyone buys a bowl of soup and a roll for £5, the money goes into a pot, people pitch their ideas, then everyone votes on their favourite and the winner takes the money. However, this time there is already £250 waiting in the pot for the winner! This is thanks to our sponsor the Port of Tilbury.

Since the first event over 4 years ago, nearly £2,000 has been raised by the community and awarded to the previous winners. Read Thurrock Council’s press release on the inaugural event.
