Missoula’s first ever micro fund night event will be on Thursday, February 8 from 4:30-6:00 p.m. at OnXMaps.

We are looking for businesses, students, non-profit agencies, and community members to present their ideas for a program, project, or business in Missoula. Micro fund night is based off of Detroit SOUP, a community financing initiative, which began in Detroit,

Michigan, to provide incentives for great community ideas. $5 at the event buys a vote, and all funds collected go to the winning idea. Learn more about SOUP here (!

Your proposal doesn’t need to be a novel and should be short, quick and to the point. Your idea can be about ANYTHING as long as it pertains to the Missoula community. Make sure you edit, look for spelling errors, etc. Applications are due by Wednesday, January 31 at 5:00 pm. You will be notified if you are chosen to present by Friday, February 2.

Presenters will have 4 minutes to present their idea (no technology available) and 4 minutes for audience questions and answers. The audience will then be able to vote for their favorite idea, and the winner will receive all funds collected on the evening of February 8 for the event.
