SOUP is a potluck style dinner. Please bring some food to pass – your donations are greatly appreciated. It doesn’t have to be crazy, but consider that there are 150-200 people who come to the dinner. Anything from soup, salad, dessert, to your favorite meal. Remember that you get 60 seconds to share about ANYTHING you are working on in the city. Let us know at info@detroitsoup.com

SOUP is a project of the Build Institute, an idea activator and small business accelerator focused on grassroots community entrepreneurship. At this dinner, you will have the opportunity to learn more about Build and shop from local Detroit businesses.

**To sustain our dinners, we we will be asking for $10, $5 of which will go to the winner and $5 will go to support ongoing dinners. It costs money for us to use the space, pay the crew that preps and cleans the space for us, pay for the artist performance, and to organize the dinners. We need your help to continue to run these events. As always, anyone is welcome at SOUP, at whatever price they can afford.
