GIF funding opportunity for Blockchain projects
The Department of Science and Technology has a partnership agreement with the Global Innovation Fund (GIF). GIF members will be visiting South Africa during 5 - 14 December 2018. As one of the first South African National Blockchain Alliance (SANBA) initiatives, the SA Blockchain community is thereby invited to submit project ideas for potential funding by GIF. The Fund is particularly looking to fund projects with high social impact. Startups, here's an opportunity!
Interested parties may submit the list of initiatives for funding consideration to ODA@csir.co.za and SANationalBlockchainAlliance@gmail.com. Provide the company name, contact person, and the description of the Blockchain idea/concept/initiative.
The Office of Digital Advantage (ODA) team will then screen the list of initiatives/concepts, discuss with the GIF team and invite presentations that GIF may consider for funding. The GIF team will be in Pretoria between the 5 - 14 December 2018.
The ODA will officially launch the SANBA strategy in April 2019, new financial year.For more info visit the ODA website.
