Sorry if my subject line sounded a bit scammy! But this is legit
and interesting and I thought the members of both the Social
Impact and Public Sector SIGs would be interested.
Deadline: July 26, 2020
**Female-founded start-ups are encouraged
The UNICEF Innovation Fund is
looking to make 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. Applicants have the opportunity
to receive a portion of funding in cryptocurrency (bitcoin or
ether) through our 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.
If you have a start-up registered in one of UNICEF’s
programme countries and have a working, open source
blockchain prototype (or you are willing to make it open-source)
showing promising results, we are looking for you.
