The Start Fund mechanism is built on “alerts” being raised to the Fund. This is simply when a Member or group of Members identify a crisis that they think is fit for Start Funds.
From this point – an alert cycle begins – where information is shared and decisions are made on whether to release Funds, and if so, which projects to select.
This all happens in 72 hours.
The guidance below for Start Network members has been designed to explain how the Start Fund works and support in the drafting of alerts, including anticipation alerts.
