MetaCartel was founded upon the thesis of funding Dapps and the Dapp ecosystem, over time this evolved informally to funding DAOs and DAO experiments
It is my belief that we are now at a 3rd stage of evolution, my suggestion is to formalize this in a new funding thesis
~ Funding Network Connections~
- Events, Awareness, and Increasing Resonance.
If we have learned anything from the creation of MCON, it is that bringing together the Meta network into a central location for a few days to align, increase resonance and share learnings is a high value opportunity for the wider DAO ecosystem.
- Fellowships, IRL Events, Communities Doing Activation.
Good examples of this are #MCON, a 400+ person, 3 day DAO gathering in Denver Co. #MetaCamp, a 40 person, 7 day intentional gathering of 60 DAO communities in Costa Rica. #DAOPalace, a 40 person, 14 day gathering of DAO leaders at Schloss Bückeburg, Germany.
As the new website is getting ready to launch, we should weave into our messaging the opportunity for communities that are connected to the meta-network our intentions to fund and support these resonance opportunities.
I have a handful of ideas and proposals that are inbound, I look forward to seeing others feedback on this new thesis and formalizing these ideas into our new website.
I’ll leave this thread open to gather feedback and consensus as we develop a clearer idea of the impact metrics we’ll need to communicate the value of this new strategy.
