[Approved] April Launch Event + Promotion / Mintbase x NFTs for Near Nordic

April Launch Event + Promotion / Mintbase NFTs for Near Nordic and Web3 Leaders

Guild Name: Near Nordic

Funding Scheme: One-time

Near Nordic is hosting an in-person launch event and tech talk to inform the community about the exciting potential of building projects on Near Protocol. This event will serve as the launch-pad for Near Nordic, drive new future builders of Near projects, and attract new local partners to join the community.

As a requirement, attendees must sign up through Near Drop to establish wallets. This also allows for attribution to the creation of wallets. After reviewing their sign ups, 200 future attendees will be granted NFTs (created through Mintbase). These NFTs will be required to be presented at the entrance to attend the in-person event.

The NFT invite paired with an in-person event will give the Copenhagen tech community their first look at a practical utility for NFTs paired with a chance to network and engage with people in this space.

This exclusive event will serve as the basis for building up an active community of Web3 leaders in Denmark. This community serves as the talent pool from which to further generate interest in an accelerator, mentorships, and supporting founders that want to build on Near Protocol.

To ensure the right type of people are in attendance, invites will be sent out to handpicked community leaders in Start-ups, Fintech, and C-level management of the move innovative organizations in Denmark.

The purpose of the event is to activate the ecosystem to:

  • Drive new wallet sign ups
  • Create awareness in the ecosystem of Near and its potential in the Nordics
  • Educate the community about the potential of Near and Web3
  • Grow the community in preparation for the Near Nordic Accelerator

As mentioned in the foundational proposal of Near Nordic, the launch event is just part of a 3 phase approach to growing an active Near ecosystem in the Nordics.

Supporting The Event:

Klint is a growth-hacking agency based in Copenhagen servicing clients globally. Since the organization’s inception in 2019, Klint has worked with small, medium, and large organizations in the Business Services, Innovation, and FinTech space.

Over the last year, Klint has transitioned to supporting Crypto projects in the United States and abroad with marketing efforts in the Near ecosystem including Ref Finance and Metapool. With 20+ specialists, working together in Copenhagen, the organization is setting its sights on supporting the rapid development of Web3 projects.

As part of the new partnership with Near Nordic, Klint has launched KlintCrypto. This joint operation serves as a venture builder and accelerator architects paving the way to give Near Nordics community members the best possible chances at launching and funding successful web3 projects based on Near Protocol.

Prior to the pandemic, CEO of Klint, Taylor Ryan ran bi-monthly in person events at a coworking space driving anywhere from 50 - 100 people for each event. Eventually this would earn Taylor a finalist nomination for Eco-System Hero of The Year Award in 2020 (Nordic Startup Awards). Organizing, promoting, and running in-person events is one of the areas that Taylor and his agency excel at.

What impact will this event have for Near in the Scandinavia Ecosystem?

Media Attention: PR
The event is expected to gain significant media attention, in part due to the extensive network, attendees, and experience that Klint has in local, international, and events management.

Additionally, Near Nordic will be the first blockchain-specific accelerator paired with venture builders backed by a growing network of eager web3 investors in Denmark.

The event is expected to generate significant press interest from a novelty angle, especially as Blockchain, Web3, and NFT projects become increasingly relevant to Nordic consumers, startups, investors, and corporate innovators alike.

Demonstrate NFT Utility: NFT Based Invitations (Mintbase)
Invitations will be distributed as NFTs via NEAR wallets and NEAR will be prominently featured throughout the event:

  • A special NFT will be distributed to selected sign-ups for admittance to the event.
  • NEAR logo displayed on all promotional materials.
  • NEAR logo displayed prominently in the event space.

Connections: Forming Partnerships Early
The Near Nordic launch event is a prime opportunity to introduce key stakeholders in the Nordic region to NEAR.

The keynote presentations are meant to expose the need for greater adoption of blockchain solutions across many industries (beyond just finance).

Klint staff will also be on hand to provide assistance with reviewing NFT invitations, taking video and photos for future marketing distribution, and providing information about Near Nordic initiatives.

Building the List Early Adopters
We’re aiming to generate a list of start-ups, ambassadors, and investors to repurpose for the foundations of a Near-focused accelerator. This list will allow us to engage and inform people of upcoming events and ultimately form the start-ups and supports of the first accelerator batch.

New Near Wallets:
As stated earlier, we will require the creation of a wallet to be selected to receive an NFT and attend the event.

Thank you @Klint for your proposal. I believe it creates a template that could be used to launch other regional NEAR groups in the future.

To give the community an opportunity to learn from your experiences, I see that your are planning to make a video of the launch event. Great idea!
