PS the money is totally no strings attached – they wont own your project or anything.

Wow, this is amazing. Wish I’d read this sooner! Hope others applied.

Thank you for reminding everyone. I always forget about this grant.

We should make a list of project Grant’s like this one.

I applied, and sent it to a few others to apply as well.

Do whe know which projects got funding yet?

Sounds like stupid hackathon and something else.

The vr cart upgrades did not make the cut.

@mpmckenna8 what project did you submit?

hey ryan, you can find the grantees list on their website: https://nostarchfoundation.org/grant-recipients/

looks like me, matt, and dave for ethical hacking

i think they had $100,000 to give away, and looking at the recipients, they didn’t give away all of it. which means that if your grant was rejected, it was not the type of thing they were looking for. Why don’t you email them to ask if they have any feedback for you? I’d love to know too for next time why they didn’t accept your application
