How our funding works

We are at heart a movement, a revolution. Our revolutionists get the chance to vote on the best ideas each year.

We progress a number of projects through to be voted upon by our revolutionists.

If selected we will ask you to do a more substantial break down of your project and a short video.

The applicants are then judged by our internal investment panel and voted on by our revolutionists.

Successful applicants will be notified in either February or August depending on the funding round.
