<aside> ✨ Interested in joining a circle? We are inviting top founders from across Climate, DEIJ & DeSci to join peers on a shared mission by forming a founder-led support circle. This cohort of Founders Circles run for 8 weeks starting on 1st November and concluding on December 20 after Gitcoin GR16.

This is a low-time, high-impact commitment towards growth.

☀️ Last cohort (FC01) We supported 72 founders across 11 circles for 10 weeks concluding with Gitcoin GR15. The 36 founders with active grants earned $9k more than the average Gitcoin grant, raising a total of $423k.
