[Updated Proposal (Approved)] "AI Inclusivity Initiative: Web3 x AI for Women and Nonbinary" for Japan Blockchain Week Side Event on 18 July 2024

AI Inclusivity Initiative: Web3 x AI for Women

Sponsorship proposal in Collaboration with IKIGUIDE and Meow Sensei AI
Japan Blockchain Week Side Event on 18th July 2024

Event Aim & Objectives

IKIGUIDE, one of Asia’s leading curated community of women in Web3, is hosting an outdoor side event in Tokyo during Japan Blockchain Week 2024 (3rd July 2024 to 31st July 2024).

We will do this under the theme of “AI Inclusivity Initiative: Web3 x AI for Women”. This is a bilingual event, and all talks will be done in Japanese and English.

We do this to demonstrate our exciting new AI Life Coach, Meow Sensei AI. Developed collaboratively with Backdrop Builders, Meow Sensei AI is a AI Lifecoach specially curated to help women in tech make more money and work less.

You may test Meow Sensei AI LIVE. Please check the deck for more details.

We will also be finding one other Web3 x AI project sponsor for this side event, to share the remaining cost of organizing, coordination and broadcasting.

The event aims to unite many women founders, builders, and cryptographers actively engaged in the Web3 and AI spaces for networking, knowledge sharing, onboarding, and community building. We want to bridge the gender gap in the Web3 and AI spaces.

By sponsoring the “AI Inclusivity Initiative: Web3 x AI for Women” greet-and-chill evening party in Tokyo, She is Near has the opportunity to elevate its brand presence, engage with key stakeholders in the Asian Web3 community, and demonstrate its commitment to empowering women in the industry.

At the end of the event, attendees will be able to claim a Meow Sensei NFT as proof of participation. Meow Sensei NFT will be minted on Near Blockchain.
