Sponsor MCON in Denver?

Its been brought to my attention that Meta Cartel is organizing a DAO-focused in-person event called MCON in Denver next month. The intention is to bring together the broader DAO community to share experiences and make new friends.

1Hive has been invited to sponsor the event, I’ve shared the sponsor pitch deck that I received as well as added a some relevant screenshots to the post. I think it is an interesting opportunity for the 1Hive community to get more exposure among DAO enthusiasts and a great opportunity for 1Hive community members who are interested to coordinate an in-person meet up.

Total cost for 1hive would be between 5-10k DAI depending on the sponsorship package, and would get us up to 25 or 50 spots for 1Hive community member attendees among other perks. I don’t have a sense of how many people from 1hive would be interested and able to go (hence the poll at the end of this post), but I suspect we probably wouldn’t need 25 spots and likely would be looking at more like 5-10 depending on interest. I would still support doing the larger sponsorship anyways, since the other perks are nice and it seems like a nice way to for 1hive to get more involved in the Meta Cartel ecosystem.

The impression I get is that the event organizers want to source funding from DAOs that will actively participate and contribute to the event with their presence, which is cool. I think the way to think about this is that we are pitching in for the costs of the event so that as a community we can show up and participate in the event, as opposed to treating it as a more traditional marketing expense. So before putting up a proposal I’d like to try and get a sense of what people’s sentiment on 1hive participating in the event, and also who individually might be interested in attending (keeping in mind that individuals would need to cover their own travel costs, covid is still a thing and variants add additional risk, and its somewhat short notice given the event is in about a month).

Looking through the other sponsors and the Speakers, this definitely looks like something 1Hive should be affiliated with. Strongly support it!

I could probably swing Denver for those dates too…

I would love for 1hive to be a sponsor of such an event, I think it’s a great opportunity to add some exposure and to meet interesting people from other DAO! I won’t be able to attend with covid, but if you guys take the personal decision to attend, please be careful with covid :heart: :honeybee:

I think its an awesome idea, organic marketing, which is the best kind imo, and just perfect fit for the demographic 1hive products are aimed at - Id love to attend but still need to read up on any restrictions that may apply considering covid and such
