How It Works



We provide extraordinary youth with seed funding for their out-of-the-box solutions to issues they care about.

We are Sidekicks. These extraordinary young people are Cosmic Heroes.


Step 1: Nominate

A person secretly nominates a student — students do not learn of their nomination.

Step 2: Vet

A special committee known as the Hero Development Bureau thoroughly vets every nominee and selects a Cosmic Hero.

Step 3: Surprise

We surprise the Cosmic Hero at an assembly in front of their peers. 

Step 4: Fund & support

The Cosmic Hero gains access to seed funding for a project to save the world — and a network of sidekicks to help.
