Hi all! Happy Thanksgiving Hope everyone here has a wonderful holiday season full of love
And thanks to Yalor for putting together the ETHos Pod - amazing work! We are very grateful for the opportunity to apply for a 3k grant for the upcoming Notfellows ETHIndia Hacker House
Name of Event
Notfellows ETHIndia Hacker House
Notfellows (started and run by Rebecca Dai, a serial crypto startup operator) is a global talent community with ~200 experienced builders founding 35+ projects in crypto. We supercharge builders by:
- Fostering a supportive and intellectually active community that helps each other grow
- Creating in-person and virtual events that stimulate deep conversations, relationship-building, and productive knowledge-sharing
- Hosting regional hacker houses to let the best people build worry-free
Our ETHBogota Hacker House (co-hosted by Rebecca Dai and Jessy Huang from WeHack) produced 17 killer projects in LatAm hackathons, winning 19 prizes in total. The extraordinary outcomes were driven by 1) carefully chosen hackers, 2) an intentionally curated building environment: light-hearted, genuine, but also hard-working, and 3) unreserved support from dedicated mentors covering all fields.
The ETHIndia Hacker House will adopt the same model.
The house will run from Nov 29 to Dec 5, supporting hackers in both the Starknet CC (Nov 30 - Dec 1) and ETHIndia (Dec 2 - Dec 4) hackathons.
Usage of Funds
With funding from ETHos, we aim to:
- Produce as many prize-winning projects as possible
- Create opportunities for our hackers, visitors, and supporters
- Contribute to the South Indian crypto community socially and intellectually
Specifically, we will allocate the funding towards:
- Accommodations for ~20 hackers near the hackathon venues
- Travel stipend for extraordinary hackers whose attendance depends on it
- Events and gatherings (food, drinks, venue)
- Labor (organizer, logistics crew, and photographer)
Why Does This Matter?
In addition to everything we’ve mentioned, we also deeply believe creative spaces like this give birth to industry-defining ideas. With support from mission-aligned organizations, we hope to make magic happen
If funded, we will provide photos documenting the event and do a follow-up interview. We shall receive funds at this address: 0xc3dED5E42904ef34004F727D7abE28137a04C920.
