The Helium Foundation grant program facilitates innovation across the decentralized wireless ecosystem by providing access to funding, technical support, and community resources to promising individuals and teams. We fund projects, development, community events, and educational resources that strengthen the network and inspire the community.
The next generation of wireless innovation will come from community-built infrastructure enabling increased decentralization, collaboration, and market acceleration. These three outcomes are guideposts that shape the grant program’s funding priorities and frame how we approach supporting the wider ecosystem of wireless innovation. Projects that aim to build more decentralization, collaboration, and market acceleration speak to the vision we hold for the future of wireless and applicants that seek these goals align with our approach to grant funding.
Supporting community gatherings that focus on building with decentralized wireless.
