Conceptualization Program

Due to a high demand for the Conceptualization Program, the CMF will no longer be accepting applications for this program.

The Conceptualization Program, which forms part of the CMF’s Experimental Stream, allocates funding to Eligible Projects at the very beginning of a Project’s creative process with the objective of giving a Project a better chance to succeed for future stages of financing. Specifically, this Program is designed to allow an Eligible Applicant to create and test a proof of concept and verify either the design idea, concept assumption or demonstrate a functionality in preparation for the Prototyping phase and beyond.


How To Apply

Applying for funding is easier than you might think. Carefully follow these steps to submit your application, and if you have any questions, please contact one of our program administrators.
