It’s been a year since we launched our Incubator Scholarship Fund to help build the seasteading builders community in Panama working on open source projects. In the past year we have raised $91K, from 20 donors, and spent $20K.
We’re excited to announce that the Thiel Foundation has renewed their financial support of The Seasteading Institute for 2011, pledging up to one million dollars in additional funding!
We’re launching our 2010 end-of-year fundraising drive to help us meet the Thiel Foundation’s $250,000 matching grant by December 31st. Please help us reach our goal! Below is the fundraising letter we’ve sent to seasteading supporters.
