Apply for the $10’000 grant

Why this grant?

Creatives Without Borders’ mission is to connect great creatives with great causes, that applies obviously to non-profits but to startups as well. When Flying Saucer Studio connect with us about their creative work it felt obvious that a partnership could be a great opportunity for many very impactful startups to not only survive but also thrive.

How does it work?

Okay, let’s dive into the money first. Figuratively, of course! There (unfortunately) aren’t any money-filled swimming pools around here. $10,000 might sound like a lot, or a little, depending on how you look at it and what your project’s all about — but we know it can go a long way!

The idea is that, with this kind of support, a passion project can quickly gain traction and then confidently grow towards their first Series A raise. How? The $10,000 comes in the form of services instead of cash, as that’s what’s most startups and projects actually need to succeed. More hands on deck. More expertise. More momentum.

The services included in the grant help early-stage projects and companies to reach their goals. We believe that this kind of help can allow companies to focus on making a positive impact, faster.

Who are we looking for?

We’re interested in working with innovative teams who are searching for creative solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems. Here is a great list to start with but many more challenges exist.

If you’re involved in a project that aims to make major positive change, then we’re looking for you! However, there are a few other criteria that will help you stand out amongst the competition, and for us to define the projects we pick.

If you’ve got any of the following going on, then it’s likely that we’re interested in working with you:

A clear mission and high potential for positive impact.
A clear definition of your initial audience or market.
An eagerness to stand out, break the mould, and find a creative approach.
A clear idea of how the grant can and would be used to the best effect.
A clear way to track results and measure success.

Most of all, we’re looking for businesses, projects, and people who are open to solutions— especially out of the box ones! If you’re the kind of entrepreneur who doesn’t want to stay in the same lane as your competitors and you’re eager to stand out, then this grant is for you.

Of course, there are some questions you’ll need to answer first. But they're fun, we promise. Check them out by accessing our online application here:
