How exactly would this benefit “Subgraph Developers, Indexers, Delegators, Curators” ?

Hi! And thank you for taking the time to apply to us.

In the process of reading the information that you provided and also the materials, I still had a few questions.

1/ I would like to know more about the benefits specifically for the project The Graph. Since it is not quite clear what exactly the purpose will be. After all, you pointed out that this is kind of closed event, for founders of web3 projects + their teams. Where should take new people or other supporters.

2/ I would like to hear more specifically about what the grant funds will go to, and how much. There are some things, alas, that DAO does not fund.

3/ How many people are you expecting? So from what I’ve seen, it’s about 1000 people, right?

4/ Also I saw some sponsorship packs, can you tell me more about them? Or do they have no connection to the grant in any way?

Thank you!!!

Thank you for submitting your proposal, I appreciate your effort and the thought you put into it.

I am interested in learning more about how this meet-up could benefit The Graph. Could you provide more context on how the proposed meet-up aligns with The Graph’s objectives and how it could help achieve its goals?

Specifically, I’m interested in more detail on the proposed agenda, guest speakers, and expected outcomes of the meet-up.

Unfortunately, this grant proposal did not generate the level of support in the community to move it to the next phase of the grant application process.

Thank you for submitting this proposal and you are encouraged to stay engaged in the Graph community. You are also welcome to submit new grant applications in the future with proposals that may generate stronger community support.

Best Regards,
Graph AdvocatesDAO
