Hi @MichaelJerry

Thanks for your application. I have a few questions about the event itself - do you have any more information you can share about the event that we can see? Eg event materials, a landing page, as well as any detail on the proposed number of people coming etc?

Also, what kind of content will you run? And purely for my own interest, are there any conferences that you’ve been to in the past that you’re keen to model this event on?

Lastly, can you share profiles of yourself and your co-host too?

Thanks!

Hi @MichaelJerry !

I went through the google doc you shared that’s supposed to outline topics that will be discussed at the event. From the document your event seems unrelated to crypto and seemed 100% centered around startups and businesses.

Are you sure you’ve shared the right link?

Hi @s3unha s3unha.

Yeah, this is a crypto-focused event and we have made it strictly for Developers, creatives, and builders working in the space, the question we ask during the registration procedures helps us filter interest in the event and ensure the people attending are active builders either building their solutions or contributing to companies leveraging Web3, Blockchain solutions, infrastructures and APIs.

In Africa, many promising projects in the past have raised money without convincing success after such big announcements which could be attributed to failed business models, scalability, and understanding how business on the Blockchain operates.

In the international scene, projects like FTX, Defi protocols, and Luna are many others that have contributed largely to the current state of the market and have clearly shown it is important to have founders and contributed in the Web3 space equipped with this Knowledge, which is why we have included many of those basics topics and invited speakers with background building Blockchain companies or working at one at the moment.

Every topic listed will be considered from a blockchain business point of view.

In our Technical conversations at the event, we will be talking about ZK syncs, Rollups, Deploying on Ethereum, Polygon, starknet, building Web3 communities, testing applications, testnets, and Mainnet, building products that solve problems, and bringing about mass adoption in Web3 space.

Here is a profile of one of our speakers. A product designer at Web3 companies.
