Braintrust Grants: MVP Wave

The Braintrust Grants Program: MVP Wave launched in January 2022. Programming is no longer active.
As an owner, the work you do to help build Braintrust earns you control over the rules, operations and future success of this network. Now you can amplify your impact.
The Braintrust Grants Program funds community-led projects to rapidly grow the network and will launch with the Minimum Viable Product Wave, referred to as the MVP Wave.
