The HBAR Foundation


Working in parallel with entrepreneurs and the Hedera community

The HBAR Foundation acts as an integrated force multiplier to help builders and creators overcome the challenges of bringing their ideas to market.

The HBAR Foundation leadership team includes experts in technology, business, legal, marketing, and ecosystem development – all focused on the success of your project. Our team members have deep roots in the distributed ledger space, and we are passionate about enabling projects to move from ideation to production – at scale.

Our Mission

We do this through a comprehensive grant program that provides financial backing for projects, expert support across technology, marketing, and business development; and access to a thriving ecosystem that helps to raise awareness of projects, accelerate innovation, and scale adoption.

How We Can Help You?

We understand that bringing your idea to market can be challenging from a number of perspectives. Lack of funding and operational support can be massive roadblocks for entrepreneurs and builders that want to rapidly deploy projects.

We eliminate these roadblocks through a streamlined grant program that can quickly provide funding for your project as well as expert support across technical, marketing, business development, and other operational functions needed to scale.
