I know the idea of a Meta Cartel event in September has been floating around so I wanted to put out this proposal to see everyone’s thoughts and keep all DAO members informed about the newest movements for the event.
Title: Mcon 2021
Description: Metacon is a DAO focused event hosted by the MetaCartel, intended to bring together as much of the DAO community as possible. This event would take place in Denver, CO in mid September (9/13-9/17 exact dates TBD). We would bring in sponsors to lead half or full day events for the group with their own speaker sessions (Gitcoin, 1kx, ForkDAO, ?) that would be connected to the DAO ecosystem.
Manifesto/Vision: The goal of our first event will be to offer a space for connections that Metacartel has built with its community and strengthen our kick ass web 3 network. If this event is successful and brings value to MC and other DAOs, the next goal would be to have recurring events with the same energy.
Problem: Not everyone in Metacartel is geographically close to each other, and Denver is far away for some.
Solution: We all meet up in one location to vibe, hack, and brainstorm IRL.
Product: The product would be an actual event, along with a template of how to recreate it and run it (for the next time around).
Validation: Just by talking with members of Metacartel, it’s clear there is a strong interest from the DAO members to make this happen.
Progress: We’re currently in the planning phase to flesh out all the details, dates, costs, and stakeholders.
Differentiation: Our main value add will be that we’re organizing for Metacartel, hopefully our community and brand can offer enough unique flavor to make this event stick out from the rest. Even if Just Metacartel members show up, the event would be a success
Team: Yalor, Damaged Goods, PeterPan, Dekan, Bau, + MC members that are interested.
Grant Request $: Sponsors should cover all operational costs.
Funds: OrochiDAO has a budget they might kick in for this. Gitcoin has some budget, SporkDAO has a budget.
Help: If there are any members that can offer help with hosting, event preparation or building a quality event then please join us.
Additional Resources: Blood of Moloch NFT launch, CHILI man MetaFactory swag, Taco Party Food truck needed, Need this doc to become a pitch deck for the event sponsors, etc
Ideal event dates 2021-09-13T06:00:00Z → 2021-09-17T06:00:00Z
We’d love some feedback, ideas, hate mail, etc. If this seems like a good idea, let it be known!
