How to Apply for Ocean Solutions Crowdfunding with Experiment Foundation
16 November 2022, 11:00am-12:00pm ET (virtual + free)

Join Katy Croff Bell and David Lang, Executive Director of Experiment Foundation, for a seminar on how to apply for crowdfunding grants through the Ocean Solutions Fund. They will be joined by previous fund recipients Salome Buglass (University of British Columbia), Sarah Glaser (World Wildlife Fund), and Ryan Mannette (SpeSeas) who will discuss their experiences and provide tips for success.

Sponsored by Oceankind, OceanX, Schmidt Marine Technology Partners, and the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation, the Ocean Solutions Fund supports experiments that seek to better understand and/or improve the health of our world's oceans.

We're looking for proposals for innovative and creative solutions for low-cost, easy-to-use ocean data collection systems, data analysis, deployment, and other replicable solutions. We will back each project up to 50% of the project cost (up to $5,000/project). 

This session will guide potential applicants through the project application process and answer any questions current applicants may have about the process.
