The Open Tech fund and the Prototype Fund are funding programs that seek to challenge the status quo – they don’t merely want to encourage the development of new tools – they grow new sustainable and diverse communities. Their role is versatile and challenging. In this session we offer you a look behind the scenes of two major funds for open source projects. We’ll answer questions that you can’t find on any FAQ page. We’ll talk about challenges, genius ideas, good and bad proposals, bureaucracy, community building and more.
