This will be a two-step process:
First, you send us a very short Letter of Interest — venture capitalist “angels” who invest in new, unproven enterprises call this an “elevator pitch.”
Second, if your Letter of Interest appears to match our interest and criteria, we invite you to submit a more extensive Grant Proposal for Funds.
