CERI Start funding is competitively awarded and provided to startups in the form of a SAFE: A Simple Agreement for Future Equity. If a CERI Start funding recipient successfully raises capital in the future and the SAFE converts to shares, CERI will reinvest all gains back into the CERI Start fund, ensuring the fund remains sustainable and donors can track the impact of their donations as the fund grows.
Grow the Fund
CERI has Deductible Gift Recipient 1 (DGR 1) status, meaning all donations (non-conditional gifts) to CERI and the CERI Start fund are eligible for tax deduction and donors will receive a receipt from CERI upon donating.
Support CERI's vision to diversify the WA economy through high-technology commercialisation and entrepreneurship education. Contribute to the growth of high-impact startups and directly help them translate their ideas to market, contributing to job creation in WA and a diverse entrepreneurial portfolio. Receive annual Impact reports for your organisation on the CERI Start fund so you can track and measure the impact of your donation. Donations designated for CERI Start will be allocated directly to the fund.
