Shawn B. (TG:Benz_Mint) is a NEAR Toronto OG who has been critical in our success-to-date. He is our event lead for larger scale events and works closely with myself and the other members to ensure that we are supporting the right initiatives and identifying opportunities to grow the ecosystem locally.
Nadir C. (TG:MarcusOrllyus) is also NEAR Toronto OG and also a co-founder of TENAMINT (NEAR HZN1 Alumni Start-up) and ecosystem contributor. He is NEAR Toronto’s primary contact for partnerships and planning of future start-up programs.
Andrew L. (TG:a_liutiev) is a NEAR Toronto contributor who has a diverse experience in blockchain community building, event organization, and more. He also is also on the Droplinkd team, also a NEAR HZN1 Alumni start-up.
Regarding our socials, they have unfortunately been inactive due to a lack of resources. With this proposal, we aim to begin the initiatives we had planned out for 2024 which includes our continued growth and social presence.
I look forward to our scheduled call tomorrow and can dive further into detail then.
I appreciate you entering that information on the NEAR Toronto tab on the spreadsheet for us and I hope this response is a testament to our commitment to addressing any communication issues. Although we aim to prioritize communications from the GlobeDAO team, there still may be times where a 24-36 hour response time may be required to due timezone differences and/or other commitments.
Please let me know if there are any other amendments or actions required regarding this proposal. I will be sure to check back later this evening and first thing tomorrow to address any outstanding items.
As discussed yesterday, there are some challenges on both sides. My idea is to start from Tier E for $1300 in March at least. I know it would be hard for you, but we also have some concerns to directly fund you from Tier D or C.
As you get started with us, I personally want to see some numbers for at least 2 months. Once you get your pace we can re-consider approach. But right now, I can only support with $1300 with Tier E KPIs. If you are okay with it, you can make changes in your proposal.
