How far along are you?:
16 months

Why did you pick this idea to work on? Do you have domain expertise in this area? How do you know people need what you’re making?:
We decided to pursue this idea based on the resounding success of ETH Mexico, an event organized by ETH Global.
Furthermore, there’s a palpable enthusiasm within the community for a large-scale event like Ethereum México 2023. We’ve been receiving numerous inquiries from individuals and communities, expressing a genuine interest and demand for such gatherings. The presence of Devcon in LATAM has only heightened this anticipation. It’s clear that people are not only ready but eagerly waiting to come together, connect, and celebrate in Mexico City this year.

What’s new about what you’re making? What substitutes do people resort to because it doesn’t exist yet (or they don’t know about it)?:
Our project is breaking new ground as the largest locally organized event of its kind, eliminating the need for people to travel abroad for such experiences. This unique approach fills a gap in the market where individuals often resort to international events.

Additionally, we’re introducing the “Road to Ethereum México,” a series of in-person events that serve to establish connections with local communities across Mexico. This initiative not only aims to decentralize activities from Mexico City but also our own organization. We believe it’s crucial to foster local community growth and facilitate interactions with various stakeholders.

What’s your vision for how your project will impact The Graph and/or web3?:

Our vision for this project is to leverage the rich pool of talented developers in Mexico to significantly impact The Graph and the broader web3 ecosystem. We see Mexico as an ideal platform for The Graph to showcase its project, tap into local talent, and establish a strong community presence. This not only opens up opportunities for talent acquisition but also fosters connections with existing and emerging developer communities in the region, contributing to the growth and adoption of web3 technologies.

Minimum: 30-49 meaningful conversations about The Graph.

These metrics will provide a comprehensive assessment of our project’s impact, engagement, and reach within the community, ensuring that we meet or exceed our goals related to The Graph’s promotion and education.

What milestones will you achieve in the coming weeks/months, with or without the grant?:
In the coming weeks and months, we have several significant milestones planned, and our progress will continue with or without the grant. These milestones include:

  1. Road to Ethereum México 2023:

Organizing 12 events in 9 cities across Mexico.
Establishing a robust network of local partner communities throughout the country.

  1. Ethereum México 2023:

Hosting a full day of Talks, Workshops, Artist and Community Showcases, with participation from 800 attendees in person and an additional online streaming audience.
Establishing a Legal Entity for Ethereum México Community:

  2. And more surprises…

These milestones collectively demonstrate our commitment to fostering blockchain and Ethereum development in Mexico and establishing a strong, sustainable presence within the local and global blockchain communities. While we are seeking grant support, our dedication to these goals remains unwavering.

With a growing number of individuals transitioning into developers, understanding The Graph’s capabilities can significantly enhance their efficiency. The Graph aligns closely with the Ethereum ecosystem, and we’ve closely observed your impactful work. Therefore, it would be an honor for us to welcome The Graph as a distinguished participant at Ethereum México 2023.

GM Graph Advocates!

I’m Brichis from Ethereum México, and we’re thrilled to be back with a fresh perspective on collaboration. In the past, we explored ways to work together with The Graph, although the process didn’t reach its conclusion. However, we’ve been reevaluating how we can partner with this outstanding project. Currently, we’re in the midst of preparations for Ethereum México 2023, and we believe it would be an incredible opportunity to have The Graph as an Official Sponsor.

Our prior collaborations, such as the one with Ledger, have been exceptionally positive experiences, as attested by Rod:

Testimonial: "I’ve had the incredible opportunity to collaborate with the Ethereum Mexico team for over a year now, and I must say, I’m truly impressed by their exceptional ability to onboard, educate, connect, and foster the growth of their vibrant web3 community. This journey has been nothing short of inspiring, revealing countless insights and possibilities that have shaped our collective vision for the future.

Their level of organization and professionalism is unparalleled, and I’ve witnessed firsthand their commitment to transparency and collaboration through the comprehensive reports they deliver, which are enriched with valuable community feedback. Their events, too, are a testament to their passion for the space, filled with captivating stories that have deeply inspired both myself and my team, igniting our drive to continually craft better web3 products and services.

Working with the Ethereum Mexico team has not only been an enriching experience, but it has also helped us forge meaningful connections within the web3 ecosystem. Their dedication to cultivating a supportive and inclusive environment has been instrumental in our growth and success.

I’m genuinely grateful for the opportunity to be part of this remarkable journey, and I’m excited about what the future holds as we continue to build together towards a decentralized and interconnected world."

We sincerely appreciate your attention, and we’re looking forward to potentially joining forces at Ethereum México 2023!

Thank you for updating us with this testimonial and I’d congratulate you and the team for achieving such a level showing dedication and sincerity.

The Eth Mexico logo has a great cultural touch and I hope regardless of the result of this application that some of the nearby Advocates manage to attend the event.

For the LATAM community details and local events, I’d like to hear from @Lorena as she has vast experience managing The Graph community in LATAM

There is a point I didn’t get is that you’re applying for a grant and mentioned you hope to have The Graph as an official sponsor

Don’t you think these are two separate things?
The Grant makes your team a Grantee in case it's passed and granted, how does it make The Graph an Official Sponsor?

You have included the presentation of the sponsorship tiers pitch which has different levels and tiers.

With regards.

GM @PeterPan!

Thank you for taking the time to engage with our Grant Proposal. We’re embarking on a new approach by seeking sponsorship to support our largest event of the year. Specifically, we are requesting a grant of $8,000, which would cover the cost of the Habanero Tier. This tier offers an array of benefits before, during, and after the event, including:

  • Registration Area Branding
  • Logo Inclusion in Event Artwork
  • Press Release Mention
  • Social Media Announcements
  • Distribution of Metallic Stickers Featuring Your Logo
  • A Dedicated Speaking Slot
  • Prominent Logo Placement During Streaming Breaks
  • Booth or On-Site Activation
  • Workshop Hosting
  • A Follow-Up Support Virtual Session After the Event
  • A Dedicated In-Person Event in Mexico City for 30+ Attendees
  • Two Scholarships for Builders to Attend the Event
  • A Dedicated Twitter Post

For your convenience, we have also provided details on alternative sponsorship tiers in the attached presentation. We are genuinely excited about the prospect of having The Graph as a key participant at our event and are eager to explore this collaborative opportunity further.

Due to the complexities associated with large-scale sponsorships for conferences and hackathons, members of the Graph AdvocatesDAO have established a new team - The Events Team.

I will be closing this grant proposal as the newly formed team will assume responsibility for the review process of this proposal.

Best regards,
Graph AdvocatesDAO

Thank you for your prompt response. Could you please provide me with contact information for a member of the events team who I can reach out to for ongoing communication, should they have any questions or require modifications? Additionally, what would be the next steps in this process?

Wishing you a great day ahead!

Greetings! They will write to you themselves, according to the information you gave in the application form. The proposal has to be considered first, and then handled afterwards.

GM @doxe01.eth! Just a quick follow-up—no one has reached out to us yet. Is there anything else we should be doing? We’re very eager to have The Graph join us at Ethereum Mexico 2023.

Yes hi, I’ve passed on and pinged the team, it’s just a little busy at the moment due to the events that are already going on.
