In addition to the providing Fellows with an opportunity to network this RSA Ideas event gave the opportunity for individuals and community groups to make a pitch for support to apply to the RSA Catalyst fund.
Fellows can listen to pitches; discuss the project with the proposer in the comfort of the bar, and at the end of the night vote for up to two projects that they want to support. The winning project will receive programme support to develop an application for seed funding which could be worth up to £2,000.
The Catalyst Fund, which would not exist without the annual donation paid by Fellows, gives out £100,000 per year to a wide range of social projects.
