Initiatives for Continuous Improvement

Each funding round offers valuable lessons that help us improve and evolve. We are committed to using the insights gained from Round 4 to support impactful projects better and enhance the overall experience for all participants.

To further refine our processes and enhance participant experiences, we are establishing a workgroup to discuss, ideate, and implement potential improvements for Deep Funding Round 5. This group will explore which aspects of the current process should be retained, altered, or removed. Details on how community members can join this workgroup will be provided shortly.

Commitment to Growth and Learning

Thank you to everyone involved in Deep Funding Round 4. Your active participation is crucial in shaping the future of AI through our decentralized platform. We eagerly anticipate your continued engagement in Round 5, as we strive to foster further innovation and collaboration.
