Crowdfunding is launched

Have your say

A GROUP of social entrepreneurs have joined forces to launch a crowdfunding event in Portsmouth.

The inaugural Portsmouth SOUP event takes place on September 22 at Canvas Coffee, Portsmouth and Southsea station, at 7pm.

The event organisers are seeking individuals or groups with interesting and innovative community project ideas to pitch for this, and future, events, with the potential to win start-up funds sourced from takings at the door of events.

Anything from urban agriculture to tech start-up will be considered, as long as it supports the community.

Deadline for applications is September 5. E-mail for information
