Submission Process

This will be a two-step process:

First, you send us a very short (less than 300 words) Letter of Interest (“LOI”) — essentially what venture capitalist “angels” who invest in new, unproven enterprises call an “elevator pitch.”

Second, if your Letter of Interest appears to match our interest and criteria, we invite you to submit a more extensive Grant Proposal for Funds.
