$40K and counting in grants for 100 Builders

Applications close in 16 days…

100.Builders is shaping up to be something amazing. We just announced a $20K match fund with Artizen last week, and we have a few more amazing partners (including a big one) to announce very soon. I couldn’t be more excited to help give away $40K and counting to 100 people building open tech in crypto and AI. Since day one our goal has been to support a more community-owned future, and we're so excited to continue building momentum on that path.

Not sure whether to apply?

To summarize in brief the answer to some of the questions we’ve been getting:

  • The time commitment to this is very low — we want to help you build on your own terms.

  • No need to commit to maintaining an open source project over the long term. We just want people who commit to building in an open way during the 4 weeks. 

  • Yes, there are no strings attached to the money.

  • We welcome any stage of project — from idea to one that is already in the hands of users/customers.
