Here you can find all projects of the Prototype Fund and filter them by round or focus. The funded projects always range between Civic Tech, Data Literacy, Security and Software Infrastructure. All projects we fund must be released under an open source license upon completion. Thus far the Prototype Fund has funded 272 projects.
As you know, one of the criteria for our funding projects is that they develop open source software and that they publish their source codes after the funding period ends. We believe that ideas that are shared offer new starting points for projects and cooperation. We also want to ensure that funded projects can be maintained and developed in the future.
To make it easy for you as developers to find these sources, we’ve collected them on our GitHub account.
