The Prototype Fund supports software developers, hackers, data journalists, creative and politically active people in realising their tech idea from the concept to the first demo. Currently there is one in Germany and one in Switzerland, but they are also looking to expand to other countries! We talked with their German director recently to start explore if we could be part of bringing it to Sweden. If you’re curious to hear more about that idea, contact me!
Tomorrow there is a chance to see examples of what type of projects they support when Prototype Fund Switzerland has its Demo Day!
