Hey! I am a young builder from Punjab, India, and a few weeks ago I organized a web3 meetup in the city of Chandigarh - and saw a huge interest ( Got 2x more signups than the spots in a single day) which shows the potential for a Chain specific meetup and who would be better than Near which has the best tech in all of web3!!
I have been wanting to organize a Near Meetup for a while and think that it’s the right time now that the market and builders are clear.
The budget would be at a max of $500 in the form of near Tokens to pay for the place and food for builders.
people - 30(We can get as many as 50 developers if the budget is increased)
-New Developers are onboarded to the Near Ecosystem
Shows that Near is committed to help more people learn about their technology
Twitter posts and testimonials from the attendes
Solana organized its hacker house in India which was the biggest in terms of attendance and projects submitted which truly shows how much the Near Ecosystem can grow, Chandigarh is the hub of tech for two Indian states and has some of the best hackers and builders.It could be a jump start for Near in North India and help onboard new developers to NEAR.
If you have any questions hit me up on discord - madhavg.eth#4168
It will be open to all but most of the people who turned up last time were devs.
if you folks want can focus on non-tech people too but mostly wanna share how cool near protocol is! Btw also had an idea, In august, the biggest web3 conf of India is happening in Goa. If the Chandigarh event goes well would near like to do a bigger event there? People from all over India are gonna be there
Do coordinate with @semwal, founder of Uniqart, who is well connected in the region. Might actually be pretty interesting to get some Punjabi artists together under one roof, if they’re open to it.
500 USD for a 30 member meetup sounds like a lot. I think we should be able to bring it down as most cafe’s would only require you to pay for the food and the venue is usually free. Would also encourage meetups over light food/pizzas/snacks, that allows us to get more participants and not just limit to 30.
Also worth running a poll or inviting folks from NEAR India community to join in case they’re around.
And as for the budget, last time 1/3 of the attendees were +1 or colleagues of people who signed up and wanted to join in the last moment so if we cap it at 30 easily it can crop up to 40 and after doing some searching have found out it usually takes around $10-15 per person for a cafe in Chandigarh. Might be able to cut a deal or something for sure too.
Would be fully transparent with your folks and return the money not spent.
Would for sure bring this up in Near India community telegram.
Hey guys – thanks for the proposal. I am glad to see your enthusiasm. I can’t support this proposal at this time due to lack of clear information and plan, but I would recommend connecting with other active members of the community here such as @Monish016@Albhion@johanga@Srilakshmi – many of whom are planning events for the Goa Web3 conference coming up. I think they will be helpful in advising you on how to get involved in the ecosystem and make an impact.
Yup I didn’t realize the timeline, maybe I will chat with other folks in Near India and come up with a proposal for a Meetup during web3 conf, goa as There is gonna be way bigger footfall then rather than in Chandigarh.
Btw @cryptocredit@so608 could you help me out what I should mention with the next proposal cause I am just 17 and naive haha
