Are you looking for funding for your project? Unsure if your new idea would be likely to get support? Interested in applying for a grant, in getting to know who ensures funds run smoothly or simply curious? Come say hi! We're here to answer all your questions about our funds.

At this meetup you will have the opportunity to meet team members from the following funds:

  • The Prototype Fund supports software developers, designers and other creatives in transforming their ideas from a concept into a software prototype. Whether data security, mobility, education or democracy – together we explore and test new ways for technical and social innovations as open source software from society and for society. Team members from Prototype Fund Germany and from Prototype Fund Switzerland will be present to answer your questions.

  • NLnet foundation (after its historical contribution to the early internet in Europe) has been financially supporting organizations and people that contribute to an open information society since 1997. It funds those with ideas to fix the internet. The procedure is fast, competitive and open to anyone.

  • The Sovereign Tech Fund supports the development, improvement and maintenance of open digital infrastructure. Our goal is to sustainably strengthen the open source ecosystem. We focus on security, resilience, technological diversity, and the people behind the code.
