About Ecosystem Support

Our Mission

The Ecosystem Support Program exists to make a wide variety of resources more accessible to projects across the Ethereum ecosystem. We aim to deploy resources where they will have the biggest impact, with a particular focus on universal tools, infrastructure, research and public goods.

ESP is an outcome of the expansion of the original Ethereum Foundation Grants Program, which focused mainly on funding. ESP's open inquiry process is designed to connect individuals and teams at any stage of development with a broad range of support, whether that means grants, technical feedback, introductions, free access to tools and platforms, or even just a friendly conversation and a nudge in the right direction.

If you want to see if ESP is a good fit for you or your project, get in touch!
