On Wednesday, November 20th, Neo Colorado is hosting a project generation event entitled “Ideas and Microgrants” in Lafayette, Colorado. The purpose of the event is to discuss ideas for projects that can be built on the Neo blockchain and how they may be supported by the COZ microgrants program. COZ co-founder, Tyler Adams, will be at the event to help workshop and discuss ideas.
Event attendees will learn about the requirements for submitting a COZ microgrant application, and how to define potential project proposals.
COZ microgrant program
The COZ microgrant program was developed to help incubate creative problem solving or innovative ideas and talent. Initial COZ microgrants will be available for up to US $5,000 (paid in NEO) and are intended to provide funding for development and research initiatives.
As the microgrant program differs from COZ’s traditional “work first, reward later” model, there is a high bar to obtain approval. Project submissions should clearly detail what the applicant wishes to achieve, how they plan to achieve it, and why their proposed initiative brings value to the Neo ecosystem.
All proposed projects must be open-source.
COZ intends to distribute microgrants regularly. However, the developer group won’t pre-determine the number of grants to be awarded and will instead let the quality of the proposals dictate the number of successful applications.
Time: 6:30 pm (UTC -6) to 8:30 pm
Date: Wednesday, November 20th, 2019
Location: Odd13 Brewing, 301 East Simpson Street, Lafayette, Colorado
There is no cost to attend the “Ideas and Microgrants” event.
This event is intended to be informal, to generate and refine project ideas, and to help participants develop a COZ grant proposal.
The tentative agenda is as follows:
- A brief overview of COZ and grant program
- Use case/tool idea generation
- Discuss each use case for ~10 minutes then move on to another
- Describe technical and drafting support for potential grant applications
