Community is the coming together of people that share a common agenda, cause, or interest to collaborate by sharing information, ideas, and resources. Columbus has strong communities of makers, innovators, inventors, artists, technologists, and entrepreneur who come together to find unconventional solutions to complex issues within our city. These communities disrupt the status quo, find new solutions, develop new methods, and create new techniques to make Columbus a better place to live and work. Columbus SOUP seeks to advance the cause of these communities and highlight their contributions to our city.
Selected applicants are highly encouraged to attend a SOUP workshop which will occur prior to the event. This workshop will help prepare SOUP applicants to present their project at the event. The workshop date and time will be announced to selected applicants after they are selected.
