If you were planning to submit an application to the Global Integrity TESTING123 Innovation Fund, it’s not too late! The deadline for submissions has been extended by another two weeks. Details and application form at http://innovation.globalintegrity.org
Global Integrity is looking to invest in brand new ideas that target the challenges of transparency and accountability. Truly innovative, wacky ideas so out there that they might fail. But they have to be testable within a reasonable time frame. If you have an idea or two that you have always wanted to try out, I’d really recommend that you apply.. and not just for the money either (most grants will be in the $10k range). The application process itself is innovative and thoughtful, and may well help you to find that nugget that makes your idea impactful. The GI team also is interested in helping out with projects along the way.
