I will be having our second soup coming up June 21 6pm at the hedrick house in Lewisville, and I would like to invite everyone to join. Soup is a micro-funding dinner - everyone pays $10 at the door, food is pot luck to keep costs as minimal as possible, during dinner you will hear 4 pitches of concepts and ideas by different individuals or teams, close to the end of the night you will vote on your favorite idea and by 8pm the winner is handed the funds from the doors. The last dinner netted a donation of $540 to Veterans Produce - an aquaponics organization that’s feeding & educating homeless vets. It’s really an awesome thing.
You (or someone you know) can now submit an application to pitch at the next soup by following this link:
Only 4 ideas will be chosen from the applicant pool - right now I have not a single applicant

Want to attend but you’re amazingly forgetful and need facebook to manage your events? Here’s the event link for the June 21st soup (6p): https://www.facebook.com/events/2281123228767919/ (this has a link to the food sign up and things of that nature)
@Lampy actually pitched at the event (and should again).
I also had some financial support because of makerspace…but both of them donated anonymously so I will keep it that way.
Application is due May 31th
Possibly someone wants to start up a woodshop with some educational hours in lewisville (just spitballing)
Possibly someone wants to make free libraries and put them around lewisville
Possibly someone has a business idea
Possibly you just have an event you want some money for.
I don’t know just apply if you have some ideas. Have no ideas? Talk to me I’m full of it…I mean ideas…ya ideas.
