Project Crowdfund – Tickets on sale now
Project Crowdfund is an initiative to allow you to get the funding you need to get your social enterprise idea off the ground, organised in association with Office of Development and Alumni Relations (ODAR). We have received some ingenius submissions from you already, which are all worthy of investment.
Here are your ideas:
Ignite run creative therapy and educational sessions with the purpose of empowering women from troubled backgrounds, giving them the support they need to get jobs or even start a business.
Campus Collective will run a university vegetable garden to encourage students to grow their own organic, nutritious food on campus, with your investment.
The Sustainable Gym team plan to create a self-sustaining gym from converted energy, produced by gym-users, to run the building.
Walking Advantage Card:
A Walking Advantage Card for people to gain credit for choosing to walk rather than using vehicles, for health benefits, reduction of traffic congestion, and improved air quality.
They are all valuable ideas which willl improve the lives of people in our local and wider community. But which idea do you think goes that extra mile? You choose!
You are invited to join us for a crowdfunding event on Thursday 24 November at 19:00 at The Cube.
Enjoy a glass of fizz on arrival included in your ticket as you get a chance to listen to the pitches from each project group. Afterwards, we will ask you to vote on the project that you think is most deserving of funding and we will then allocate £5 from every ticket to each project based on your votes.
Stay afterwards to network and find out more about each project from the teams themselves and offer further investment if you wish.
Tickets are just £7.50 available at www.unionsouthampton.org/boxoffice
Stay up-to-date with the latest news and updates on our official Facebook event.
