New Businesses. Local Projects. Small scale Funding.

Mersey Soup is a regular micro-grant event, supporting new enterprise projects in the Liverpool City Region. If you’re an entrepreneur with an interest in social and community issues, come along and pitch your idea to the attendees and you could walk away with enough money to start you off in business.

For a small entrance fee to our regular evening event, a ticket entitles you to soup and bread. You also get one vote, to be cast in favour of the best pitch you hear that night. The winner of the most votes goes home with the profits from the ticket receipts.

Mersey Soup is:

  • a collaborative event for socially conscious people and those with great ideas
  • a way to connect with like-minded people across the city
  • a democratic experiment in crowdfunding
  • a hub for the best new enterprise ideas germinating in the city
  • a forum for critical but accessible discussion
  • a chance to support new businesses in and around Liverpool

Mersey Soup welcomes applications from anyone who needs funding for a new project.

If you’d like to pitch for funding for your project, there’s a short form here to fill in so we know what your project is all about.
