  3. Growth grants: up to $100,000 in RENEC for projects that have a working DApp or smart contract and are looking to scale and reach a wider audience.

The launching bonus will be released in 4 installments over a period of 4 quarters. The exact amount of grant amount is subjected to review of renec foundation and offered to you via email.

In case there is serious problem with the maintaining of DApp over its first year, RENEC foundation reserves the right to cease the funding process.

Grants are not:

  • Venture funding round: While we do consider applications from venture-funded companies, it's important to note that grant funding is not intended to replace traditional funding rounds. Rather, our grants program is focused on supporting individual projects that provide a public benefit to the RENEC ecosystem.
