About OpenGrants

OpenGrants is run by an experienced and passionate team of entrepreneurs, technologists and philosophers. We believe that, if done right, a business can be an effective catalyst for lasting change. Our past experiences exposed major challenges with grant funding, so we’re building the tools and community to solve them. It’s not an easy path, and not a typical company. Our mission—build modern infrastructure for public funding to massively improve the efficiency and equity of those funds—is what drives us every day.


To empower people around the globe with access to grant funding resources.


To deploy modern financial infrastructure to support efficient, equitable, and transparent grant funding processes.


Organize the ecosystem of funders, recipients and consultants. Set standards for the market. Empower decision makers with the data they need to intelligently design funding programs.


OpenGrants was launched in 2018 with investment from friends and family. We have since raised additional funding from a variety of institutional and independent investors. OpenGrants continues to raise capital via a blend of instruments. Meet our investors and discover the OpenGrants investment community.
