1/ Introducing Blockchain at Berkeley Grants, designed to bridge the gap between students’ unbridled potential and the resources they need to manifest their vision. 🐻

Who better to enable the next generation of builders than their own peers? 🧵⤵️

2/ Eliminating prominent entry-level obstacles arms student creators with the agency to translate vision into reality: Removing financial barriers, connecting projects to the ecosystem, & cultivating an innovative community empowers students to push the space forward.
3/ The first wave of B@B Grants is powered by @bitdao’s @edudao. Student startups, open-source projects, and research are all eligible for grants during our first wave of funding. The application & more information about our grants program can be found at blockchain.berkeley.edu/grants.
4/ Wave 1 includes $200K in dilutive grants & $50K in non-dilutive grants. Non-dilutive grants can range from $1K to $5K, while dilutive grant sizes are larger & are dependent upon our evaluation of the project. DM us or email grants@blockchain.berkeley.edu with any questions!
5/ B@B Grants will be led by board members of Blockchain at Berkeley @daryakaviani, @ratankaliani, @emguoz, & @sehyunchung. We’re extremely excited to have alumni @jonathantallen1 @nadirakhtar123 @medhakothari @valardragon @j_humenansky @MaxFangX @dberenzon serve as advisors!
6/ At its core, Blockchain at Berkeley Grants embodies one key vision: The future of high-impact, student-targeted funding is students empowering students. 🐻
