Kickstart Your Dreamjob
or Launch Your Career to New Heights
The Overcast’s $12,500 Albedo Grant is available for entrepreneurs, organizations, and artists looking to kickstart a dreamjob or launch their operation to new heights.
Its 3 sponsors, Dean MacDonald, John O’Dea, and Phil Keeping’s family, will judge your submissions, and grant $12,500, no strings attached, to a winner.
Whatever your mind can whip up that’s worthy of free funding is eligible, but there’s an emphasis on benefit to the community you’ll operate out of.
This grant exists to help you leap over any financial barriers between you and your golden idea, be a start-up or an expansion project.

The Deadline for 2018’s Albedo Grant closed July 15th

If you really have a handle on your idea, you can present why it’s a great idea, how it can benefit the community, and how you will execute it in 2 pages or less!
