Name of DAO
Mission - Help pre-founders with a Chinese background turn their ideas into a reality.
Beta DAO is an open-source, community-led, and self-sustaining community for pre-entrepreneurs. The mission adheres to “innovative talents turn ideas into reality here,” and is committed to building an ecological network for outstanding young people who want to make the world different. Beta DAO is built on the token and based on a Discord server that everyone can get access to and started to contribute. Each member of the Beta DAO will have the opportunity to buy the BETA token(HRC 20), thereby investing in the community after Beta DAO has its Initial Coin Offering. Before that, Beta is going to mint its own NFT(HRC 721) as a representation for the membership. Each NFT can be redeemed for one year of Beta Fellowship’s membership and therefore enjoy all the benefits that Beta Fellowship members have.
Within the community are entrepreneurs, investors, alongside other people from various backgrounds - basically, anyone with an interest in empowering projects that could potentially change the world. In Beta DAO, you can meet like-minded people in your industry, network with investors and successful entrepreneurs, find new partners, get business advice on how to make your startup in better shape, or help project ideas to become reality.
For now, Beta had successfully initiated its community in web2. We have a bit less than 1000 paid members in the community and continue to deliver bi-weekly speaker events. At the same time, we are collaborating with famous venture capital firms, startup communities, and successful entrepreneurs to empower our community. We are now deploying our success in building the web2 community into the web3 world. We are currently building our discord server and planning to make the server public to our members within two weeks. We are also accepting Harmony ONE for Beta Fellowship’s membership on our website. For this part, we will need some help from Harmony since the current Harmony Pay WooCommerce Plug-in does not work.
Community - Onboarding entrepreneurs, investors, and people who are interested in contributing to startup ideas to help pre-entrepreneurs.
Education - Teaching courses on the essential materials that pre-entrepreneurs must know.
Bounties - Letting each of the DAO members empower each other’s startup ideas and get rewarded
Community: There will be community-building events, mentorships, online open platforms for members to engage with each other. The community will be based on a Discord server that everyone can join. It’s a platform for all the members to communicate and connect. The Discord channel will be linked with the official Beta DAO Twitter account for announcements. The governors will also host community calls on the Discord channel. Within the community, Beta DAO members can meet other people that share their values.
Education: We provide education through recorded lectures, seminars, workshops, and various events among community members. Here, you can learn about how to implement your idea into reality. Members will also have the chance to participate in real-life projects to learn through the process. Starting from March 15, we are hosting our Pre-entrepreneur spring cohort in our discord server.
Bounties: The bounty economy is one of the core values that Beta DAO can deliver to its members. The bounty board allows Beta members with sufficient tokens to post the task and reward for other members to contribute to his project. Whoever wants to contribute to the bounty task and claim the reward should first hold a sufficient amount of token in his wallet and staking the same amount of token for the project as the reward. If the task is not fulfilled, then the staker will be punished by losing all the tokens he staked for the project.
