The calendar for Philly Tech Week 2014 presented by AT&T is growing. We’re excited to see many new organizations, large and small, getting involved in the week.
In an effort to be inclusive and help smaller organizations (or those that are specifically mission-driven) have a presence in the week, we are again offering modest stipends to help cover event costs, including snacks, a venue rental, supplies, etc.
We’re giving these grants to events that (a) can do the most good with the least money, (b) fit in the community and impact spirit of Tech Week.
This year, we’ll be offering at least 5 micro-grants of around $150-$300 to meaningful groups that embody one or more of Tech Week’s six tracks.
To apply for one of the micro-grants, fill out this form. The deadline has been extended to Monday, Feb. 17 at 5 p.m.
In the interest of transparency: we always share that Philly Tech Week sponsorship is a big part of what funds our year-round, daily-dedicated reporting and full-time community organizing efforts, but we’re always committed to bringing more groups into the fold.
