Incubator DAO: mandates & deliverables

Traction: Drive dapps to reach 10K MAU. Target products that accelerate crypto adoption.
Talent: Identify & connect talent to projects. Support talented founders.
Treasury: Guide best practices in fundraising. Introduce projects to network of investors.

Current draft of the Incubator DAO mandate is:
Traction: Drive dapps to reach 10K MAU. Target products that accelerate crypto adoption.
Talent: Identify & connect talent to projects. Support talented founders.
Treasury: Guide best practices in fundraising. Introduce projects to network of investors.

Still a little bit of a work in progress - but we seem to be getting good feedback on it.

Hi @Sam I would like to contribute to Incubator DAO. What are the possibilities to contribute to it e.g., coding, documetation, tribute, governance etc.? Please let me know.

Thank you.

Regards, Sanjeev

For the Incubator DAO here is my proposal for Timeline + DAO-kickoff-elections:

Incubator DAO mandates:
Traction: Drive dapps to reach 10K MAU. Target products that accelerate crypto adoption.
Talent: Identify & connect talent to projects. Support talented founders.
Treasury: Guide best practices in fundraising. Introduce projects to network of investors.

Deliveries following mandates accordingly:

  • Drive dapps to reach 10K MAU. Target products that accelerate crypto adoption
  • Introduce projects to network of investors, founders tracking and KYC in all projects supported
  • weekly posts with the dapps and works
  • Fundraising dapps status and support

to-do-List:
1 - Froze the Mandates
2 - Logo for the Incubator DAO (i will propose one ASAP)
3 - Incubator DAO snapshot slot for vote (I can do it after the logo ready)
4 - Incubator DAO Kickoff & Elections - similar what @giv have done with Developer DAO Developer DAO Kickoff & Elections
5 - Timeline announcement

Proposed Timeline:

    • Description of decentralized applications they have worked on (links, demos, videos).
    • Track record of experience with fundraising projects
    • Long record following Harmony values.
    • Investors network
  • Nice to have:

    • Experience writing documentation.
    • Leading and managing project teams.
    • Experience running talks and events.

  • Elections will be held for a period of 1 week.
  • Candidates are encouraged to promote themselves and share their Forum post across different channels.

DAO commencement

  • Oct 24, 2021, 9 am PT : 9 governors will be elected for a 3-month term.
  • Multisig wallet creation and funding.
  1. 500 Launches ($20M). Applications of each launch must have prototyped a feature-full product. Harmony helps incubate these founding teams with product development, fundraising, and talent recruit. We recommend a $50K equity-free contribution each: $10K after launching a feature-complete product on our testnet, $10K after mainnet launch, $10K after forming a DAO with its community, and $20K for after 10K users.

Will Incubator DAO manage these 500 releases? or will it be another demand?
