The primary goal of the The Graph Networking Lunch is to create a conducive environment for collaboration and knowledge sharing among key players in the Web3 space. By bringing together individuals from diverse backgrounds and projects, we aim to foster a spirit of community, encourage partnerships, and facilitate the exchange of insights that can drive innovation within the The Graph ecosystem.
Describe what your project does or is aiming to do in 50 characters or less:
We are seeking support for an event that we believe will greatly benefit the The Graph community and the wider Web3 ecosystem. Following the ETH India Hackathon, we plan to organize a Networking Lunch, providing an exclusive platform for founders, engineers, protocols, and DApp developers to connect and exchange ideas.

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?:
Me, Pranav, Paolo, and Charchit sat for a brief discussion on Eth India’s Advocate’s meetup and realized that it would be more prudent to have lunch with the founders, engineers, and Dapp developers from Eth India. Including some advocates in the gathering would provide them with exposure, all while saving costs.
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 upcoming The Graph Lunch, following the ETH India Hackathon, is the latest initiative from The Graph India. It’s a unique way fostering collaboration among Web3 founders, engineers, and advocates.
What’s your vision for how your project will impact The Graph and/or web3?:
Our vision is to revolutionize BD support for The Graph and web3. We focus on proactive event engagement, setting up impactful meetings, creating meaningful connections, and ensuring follow-up. By fostering strong relations, we contribute significantly to our network’s growth.
How will you measure success?:
We will measure success by various key indicators, with one of the primary goals being the inclusion of 20 core web3 contributors in our lunch. Additionally, success will be gauged through the growth of our community engagement, the successful implementation of our project milestones, and the positive impact we make within the web3 ecosystem.
What milestones will you achieve in the coming weeks/months, with or without the grant?:
Will roll out exclusive invitation leaveraging Pranav’s connection.
