Powerhouse Bootcamp and Pitch Competition

Name of Event/Project

Powerhouse Bootcamp and Pitch Competition

Proposal overview

We are launching a hacker house for web3. Our bootcamp coaches founders through the process from starting an idea to customer discovery, marketing strategies, business models, how to pitch your business, to building an all-star team. It is in summary, a web3 founders college. We facilitate cohort-based lessons which increases engagement and retention while maximizing learning.

The program is ready to launch in 3 weeks! We have over a dozen founders co-living and co-working with us, and are excited to bring them on board. The current projects are not on Harmony yet, but many builders are looking for a protocol to build on. A sponsorship from Harmony would ensure that female and underrepresented founders get sponsored who otherwise would not have been able to enroll in the program.

The founders and influencers in our network have over 15M followers across social media channels with a reach of 1.9B. We are looking to grow that network significantly with the founder network effects. $100K would fund 4 cohorts for the entire year, and $25K would fund 1 program/cohort.

Our next milestone is launch (May 23rd), so we are looking for sponsorship in the next 2 weeks.
