To Apply

  1. Scroll to the bottom of this page and Click “Submit” to begin your application.
  2. You'll need to create a new Submittable account or log-in to your Submittable Account to access the application.
  3. Log-in Name: The First and Last Name used for your application should be the full legal name of the Submitter (NOT the title of your project or your company name).
  4. Email: We will follow-up with you about your submission by email. Please be sure the email address you used to sign up for your Submittable account is one that you check regularly and that Submittable emails are not auto-routed to junk/spam.
  5. Reminder: Github Repo/Proof of Code you should have, at a minimum, a rudimentary prototype we can see on GitHub. The minimum is at least a few days of work (e.g. proof of concept created over the course of a weekend or for a 24 hour Hackathon). If you do not have the above, please take the time to build out a repository with your project. We will not fund projects that are just an idea or do not show sufficient initial work. Additionally, the reviewers are looking for overall effort, not just base code. If it is an existing project, such that you already have a previously-built beta or release, you can use that! Just make sure it is open sourced on GitHub first. The prototype does not need to be fully functional. For some projects, technical specifications and preview documentation may be sufficient.
