Grants of $60,000 and in-kind support to New York nonprofit organizations and for-profit startup businesses to develop early-stage social technology ventures in eligible locations. Funding is intended to create products that improve the quality of life for low-income residents. Grantees will also benefit from coaching, product support, networking, and community connections. The program is designed to help turn a proven concept into a scalable technology platform. The program targets ventures that focus on low-income Americans with a particular emphasis on New York City.
Catalyst caters to teams working in any vertical, as long as the product aims to differentially improve the lives of low-income New Yorkers and has a technology component.
Over the course of six months, as part of a small cohort of other founders, grantees will build an enhanced version of their product and get it into the hands of real people for feedback and validation. In parallel, they will receive assistance to identify the other resources they will need to be successful over the long-term, such as funding, team members, and partners – and will receive assistance in putting the systems in place to do this well.
