The MetaPod Pitch Competition is the first IRL experience & launch event to kickoff the MetaPod 6-week DAO Accelerator Pilot Program. This first event is a pitch competition for DAO & community focused projects. Winning teams are set to win up to $10,000 and be fast-tracked into the MetaPod Accelerator.
Detailed rationale for why this proposal exists and should matter to GIV holders, the Giveth community, and/or giving ecosystem
We are stoked to welcome Giv’ethers into the MetaPod acceleration program, the shared mission, vision, and values alignment between the MetaCartel and Giveth ecosystem is stronk
As a key MetaPod sponsor Giveth will be promoted and have time to speak at the event, have access to the MetaPod Pilot program pipeline, have slots on the judging panel. GIV rewards could be distributed to the winners as part of the Pitch Competition, as well as having direct access to attendees to seed ideas for the Giveth Ecosystem as part of the Pitch Competition.
Leveraging IRL local meetups, the MetaPod program educates and onboards Web2 projects and communities into the world of Web3 & DAOs, while simultaneously incubating new Web3 startups and ideas, as well as scoping a 6 week intensive program MVP while also exploring the full program pipeline needs.
Promising teams will be shortlisted for the 6-week MetaPod Accelerator Program, where they will start, run and grow their DAOs/communities. Throughout the 6 weeks, they will receive advisory, coaching and connections to grant providers, service guilds, investor DAOs and more.
Starting with an IRL event in Denver, Wednesday 16th of Feb, continuing for 6 weeks prior to that event up the 30th of March.
