Hi there! Thanks for submitting this proposal and i really like the idea of this physical event. But i had a question, i see if your budget breakdown covers only food expenses won’t that be a good idea to organise this event as a event evangelist and later you can submit a poc for the event hours and for all the food expenses you can fill out the reimbursement sheet where you can request for food/drinks and other expenses, if any?

Will be waiting for your reply, Thanks!


Thanks for your application.
I would like to know more about this proposal. Are you looking for sponsorship?
Do you have an agenda?
What is the relationship of this proposal with The Graph ecosystem? How this proposal could improve the ecosystem?
Could you have a breakdown of the budget?



I have several questions regarding this grant proposal and i also want to hear @Colson opinion here, since you have mentioned him.

How does the project team envision the event contributing to the growth and engagement of the web3 community, particularly in Berlin?

How will the team ensure that the event is a safe and welcoming environment for all participants? Because it’s interesting to know so that people can feel good about themselves.

Could you provide information about the event’s agenda?

How does this event align with the goals of the grant program? This question will help me to understand whether the event is a good fit for the grant program and whether it is likely to achieve the desired outcomes.



Hello everyone!

The team from Deutsche Telekom and our Graph community members at Dappcon had many hours of great conversation. We’ve noticed that the Graph community in Germany could use a little boost, so we came up with the idea of hosting a Graph community event in Germany.

As you can read in the proposal, Deutsche Telekom is kind enough to potentially host this event in one of their spaces. @TheGraphGermany and I could take care of organizing this. With the help of other German community members, we could host a series of small workshops and presentations to educate attendees about The Graph and web3.

If necessary, we can coordinate with our contact at Deutsche Telekom to set an agenda.

Overall, I think this event would be a cost-effective way to energize the German community!

Should this not qualify as a community grant, either @TheGraphGermany or I could submit an advocate contribution form to get this event off the ground.

Let me know if more information is needed.

cool cool! I remember Andy was always wishing to organise any physical event in German community and everyone knows how passionate he really is! And you contributing with him will be a super cool thing to do :wink:
Voting in favour of this proposal!


Hello Sir,

Certainly, this is indeed feasible.
The grant amount provided serves as a preliminary, conservative estimate, which we included in the form.

Naturally, it is advisable to furnish a precise breakdown of expenses along with corresponding invoices following the event and provide them to the Grants Team.


Hello Lorena,

At Deutsche Telekom, we are committed to covering most of the expenses for this event. Specifically, we will handle the Technical Setup (beamer, chairs, internet etc.) at secure a suitable location in our Telekom Offices.

In terms of the agenda, our primary focus for this event is on education, marking it as our inaugural Graph community gathering in Berlin. Our plan is to disseminate insights into Deutsche Telekom’s role as an indexer, complemented by the participation of community speakers. Following these informative sessions, we intend to facilitate networking opportunities while savoring some delicious pizzas, which will be covered by the grant.

We are keen to have representatives from the graph team join us, and the grant would be utilized to offset their travel costs, which are expected to be the primary expenses. This gesture is our way of extending a warm welcome to the community.

As commented above. Cost breakdown can be provided after the event.

Hello Sir,

Hosting a community event in Berlin can significantly contribute to the growth and engagement of the Web3 community by providing a platform for knowledge exchange, collaboration, and networking.

Additionally, the event can serve as a hub for startups and projects to showcase their work, attract investment, and form valuable partnerships, ultimately strengthening the Web3 ecosystem. By promoting inclusivity, artistic expression, and collaboration with like-minded organizations, this event can play a pivotal role in advancing the Web3 community’s growth and engagement in Berlin.

The event will take place in the secure Telekom offices, providing a safe and inclusive environment that welcomes everyone.

The agenda includes engaging speaker sessions, followed by a delightful pizza break and networking opportunities.

A community event can work towards achieving several important goals, including fostering knowledge sharing and education, promoting networking and collaboration, showcasing innovative projects and startups, enhancing inclusivity and diversity, and ultimately contributing to the growth and engagement of the community it serves. The event serves as a platform for attendees to learn from experts, exchange ideas, build connections, and gain inspiration, thereby advancing the collective understanding and progress within the community.
