Hey @pratham29! First, I love the meaning behind this hackathon - very much needed in this space! Can you elaborate on what the sponsorship package includes for Harmony?

The ask is very modest, and your values align with ours. Once we have that information, we can decide how to best proceed.

Thank you!

Is your event entirely virtual?

@Mattyontap Yes, the event is completely virtual, but a blockchain workshop is being organized pre-event in offline mode, with limited participation (around 150 people).

Can you share the social media accounts (Twitter, LinkedIn) for the Indian Hacking League, yourself, and another person from your team?

Indian Hacking League is our local event partner which helps us in organizing workshops and securing local Sponsors. It does not have any social media presence as of now.
For this edition of Hack For Inclusion, we are also partnering with Major League Hacking (MLH) as our event partner.

Really cool proposal!

I think everything looks great, and I would like to move forward with approving this proposal as a Title Sponsor for $3,000 USD.

Can you and Animesh connect with me on Telegram? I would like a group chat for ongoing coordination.
