Just remember, whenever you get funding from someone it always comes at a price. No one is going to give you money without getting some level of control over a project. That is the tradeoff.

Adrian is right, 99% of shorts are self funded. In Europe and Canada there are a lot of grants available, but there's nothing in the US that I am aware of.

So there is funding then.
Good news Phil, you will be a minority in 2027, so you'll be free to apply.
