Should the following Tier 6: up to $240,000 USD, 6 months vesting (1 month cliff) grant in the Community category be approved?
Web3 technology and business models are hard to understand especially for new entrants and non-technical startup founders that come from creative and lifestyle industries.
Web3 Founder collective is a diverse community for startup founders from non-technical backgrounds to learn, network, and get the resources they need to build a web3 startup.
We provide a platform for startup founders to learn about web3 technologies, network to find co-founders, and connect with blockchain developers so they can build web3 applications.
Meet co founder
We are a combination of a digital learning community and a “pop-up” co-living Launch Studio for startup founders working in Web3.
We will bring a diverse and underrepresented group of founders from non-tech industries into the web3 space.
This will create more variety of products and solutions that can appeal to a broader segment of society.
Secondly, a key component of the project will be an open source mobile NFT verification wallet for apps to verify and authenticate ownership to grant access to communities, events, and content.
This could become a vital component to other projects around the world that will need a no-code solution to verify NFT ownership in their apps for communities, events, and ticketing.
We currently have 70 active members + 800 members whitelisted. We plan to expand the community through our mailinglist. Reach out through partners to secure speakers, residents, and moderators. Develop seed content with our partners. Build an open source NFT verification and auth system and secure and anchor partner with headline sponsorship for our launch Studio.
