Looking to participate but not quite ready for the Seed Fund? Test your mettle in the Lab Fund and explore the possibilities of Stellar! Use, talk about, or showcase Stellar in some way and you’re welcome to participate.

The goal of the Lab Fund is to inspire experimental use cases, open-source software, documentation, events, market presence, and real-world stress tests. The Lab Fund will also serve as an onramp into the Seed Fund.
This fund is an entry point for exploration and discovery. It's designed to encourage and support wide and varied ecosystem experimentation, and will have lower prize amounts, higher frequency, and more entrants than the Seed Fund. The bar for eligibility is therefore quite low: use, talk about, or showcase Stellar in some way and you’re welcome to participate. There’s a nomination panel to filter out ineligible entries and to select the ~12 best for the final community vote, but the idea is all are welcome to try and keep trying.
