An international organization is making up to $100K equity-free investments (in USD and/or cryptocurrency) to provide early-stage (seed) financing and mentoring to for-profit technology startups that have the potential to benefit humanity. GBA members may apply and have the opportunity to receive a portion of funding in cryptocurrency (bitcoin or ether) through a recently launched CryptoFund. Given the current global climate and a dramatic shift to a digital world as a result of COVID-19, open-source solutions that address critical needs for society are as important as ever. This opportunity is being made available to members of the GBA Investment & Startup Community.
If you have a start-up registered in one of the countries listed below and have a working, open-source blockchain prototype (or you are willing to make it open-source) showing promising results, international organizations are looking for you.
