The Stellar Community Fund is an open application grant program that gives out up to 24M a year to all kinds of Stellar-based projects based on input from the Stellar community. Submissions are open for the 11th round and you can request your personalized submission form here: communityfund.stellar.org/apply.
For the first time ever, selected candidates of SCF #11 are invited to participate in a virtual bootcamp from November 1-4 to support their journey on Stellar.
Developed by DFS Lab, the SCF#11 Startup Bootcamp will adopt a variation of the Design Sprint process created by leaders at Google Ventures. Design sprints can shortcut the endless-debate cycle of product development and compress months of time into a single week.
DFS Lab and SDF partnered twice in the past year to host two successful bootcamps that onboarded African fintech startups to Stellar. Now the focus shifts to accommodate SCF#11 candidates globally and in three major time zones through the SCF Discord.
Participating developer(s) and companies joining the bootcamp will work with members from SDF, DFS Lab and the Stellar ecosystem to define a problem, storyboard a solution, and develop a rapid prototype before getting feedback from the Stellar community. Get connected with the ecosystem to develop your idea into a tested product!
Participate by filling out the SCF#11 application to request your submission form. Indicate your interest in participating in the bootcamp, and complete all required fields of your personalized submission form before the first submission deadline on September 25th at 11:59 PM PST.
If your submission gets selected to participate in SCF#11 (and the bootcamp), we will reach out to you in the week of October 10th with more details on how to get ready for the bootcamp and introduce you to your facilitator(s)!
