Winning the SCF #10 wasn’t just about getting a grant, we had the opportunity to build and scale our mission with a community that really cared about what we were building and supported us every step.

Be open minded and flexible! Any startup building on Stellar should think of submitting to the SCF, which is without doubt the most welcoming and constructive fund we’ve ever worked with.

The SCF is a great way to validate your product, get in touch with the community AND get a chance to collect funding to take your product to the next level. You'll always get value out of it!

To potential submitters I'd say: Apply! Even if you don't win, the visibility and feedback can be beneficial on their own. You never know what connections might come out of the experience.
