The Momental Foundation is a grantmaking foundation and impact-focused startup accelerator. Its mission is to build bridges between the academic, entrepreneurial, and civil communities to create a more human-centered and sustainable future through technology.

Each Mistletoe Research Fellow is also a participant in their Unfettered Research Grant Program and the recipient of a $10,000 research funding award. This rare, unrestricted funding opportunity offers these academic scientists a rare chance to engage in independent research, encouraging meaningful growth, independent exploration, and risk — even serendipity and play — in their scientific research.
