Community Fund

The Community Fund provides initial seed funding to help startups gain traction in the marketplace. Its intent is to accelerate the growth of members’ new businesses and companies in San Antonio’s emerging downtown ecosystem.

The Community Fund will release a single $10,000 to one eligible Geekdom member.  Geekdom members who are in good standing , have been a member for at least 90 days, have a legally formed company, and are contributing members to the community are eligible to apply.

The Community Fund process will occur monthly, creating more opportunities for members to earn $10,000 and begin fueling their business.  To get started, members must first apply online.  Once the application period is closed, a group of top finalists will be selected from the eligible submissions to advance to the next stage.  Those finalists will then pitch their businesses to the Community Fund Selection Panel.  Each finalist is allowed five minutes to present their business idea, product, or service with an additional five minutes allotted for Q&As.  One company is then be selected to earn $10,000.
