Annapolis SOUP Meeting June 11

| May 31, 2013 | 0 Comments

spupAnnapolis SOUP is a new event/group in the Annapolis area.  It is a community event created to help the people of the Annapolis area.  All ages are welcome – some even bring their babies along!  These monthly events are a way for people to make friends, socialize and maybe get a little money and support for their small home-based business.

You pay $5 cash (if want to donate more great) at the event – get a bowl of soup, free giveaways, maybe a door prize and a vote.  The first hour is social time, then there are 5-minute presentations and a secret ballot vote for your favorite entrepreneur.  The one who gets most votes walks away with the evenings cash proceeds, as well as a prize package that currently includes a business card design, a headshot, free meeting space, and some IT services – an entrepreneurial package!

All ages are encouraged to present.  Last month’s winner was a 17 year old who is starting a bike rental business on the B&A trail.  If your neighbor makes jewelry; if your son wants to start a  lawn business; if you want to start a photography business, and need some financial support and a boost – check out Annapolis SOUP.

The next event will be Tuesday, June 11th, 5:30-7:30pm at the Metropolitan Kitchen & Lounge (2nd floor). Please bring $5 cash and support the Metropolitan through other food and drink purchase as they are donating the venue and the soup.

PLEASE visit annapolisSoup.wordpress.com to RSVP or to apply to be a presenter.  For more information contact [email protected].  The group meets monthly but will take a summer break in July and August.  The events will resume in September.
