We are excited to announce the Open Call for the New Media Ventures Innovation Fund!

New Media Ventures catalyzes progressive change by funding amazing technology and media startups that are making the world a better place. Our Innovation Fund finances early-stage, for-profit and nonprofit startups with $50K, participation in NMV’s startup support program and access to NMV’s network of angel investors. Apply Now!

Our mission is to support innovators creating progressive change, and we are particularly interested in organizations that are building political power to do so. While we don’t have a “theme” or focus-area for this open call, we will pay particular attention to startups in the following areas:

  • Uses for cutting-edge technology (such as virtual reality, drones, artificial intelligence, or the blockchain) that could create breakthrough progressive change
  • Mobile-first campaigning technology
  • Campaigning innovations such as distributed organizing models and deep canvassing
  • Solutions to win battles for climate action or prepare front line communities for a just transition
  • Mission-driven media platforms
