Have you already raised the funds for this? EA Ventures failed a while back primarily because there was not the money, and those in charge of it found that they had a much more difficult time raising funds than they expected.

Yes, this project is fully funded, from donations from a large donor given for this purpose.

On this topic...

I would be interested in a write up of EA Ventures and why it did not seem to work (did it fail) and what can be learned from it. I think there is significant value in learning for the EA community in writing up projects like this even if they went wrong.

Similarly I would be interested in seeing the write up of the Pareto fellowship - another program that possibly (it is unclear) was not the success that was hoped for.

If it is the case (I hope it would be the case) that CEA has an internal write-up of these projects but not a publishable one I can try to find a trustworthy London based volunteer who could re-write it up for you. Or it might be a good project for a summer intern.
