Feather Grants were an experiment in micro-patronage, providing tiny grants (upto $500) to individuals creating positive-sum value across a variety of fields.
Our thesis was pretty simple.
- Small amounts of money go a long way in certain nations.
- Providing young people with capital gives them access to more ambitious actions they might not have considered before.
- Encouraging outliers is worth more than the nominal dollar amount.
Note: Feather Grants is no longer active.
