Through Contrary's Gap Year 2020 program, Contrary will be investing up to $100,000 in 5 companies who choose to build this coming year rather than attend school virtually. 


The only requirements are that teams commit to working on their company full-time from September through Spring of 2021, and that at least one member of the team is taking a gap year to build the company (undergrad/grad students and dropouts are welcome). They are also interested in funding international students, irrespective of visa status. Read about the launch of the program from these news sources: Protocol, Forbes, Business Insider, and The New York Times

You can learn more about the program here, and teams can apply directly at contrarycap.com/gap-year.
