Overview

Dor Garbash and Johnny Nguyen, creators of Catalyst and Intersect MBO, propose a project to enhance the Singularity Net ecosystem's strategy. They aim to improve the ecosystem's return on investment (ROI) by conducting research, data collection, analysis, and workshops with key stakeholders. The project, funded with $50,000, seeks to address the challenge of defining Singularity Net's ecosystem strategy to attract top talent and foster innovation.

Their solution involves a rigorous builder-centric strategy based on interviews with ecosystem builders, innovators, and expert assessments. The target audience includes administrators, DAO members, founding organizations, and builders. The project will disseminate its findings through PDF reports shared on Singularity Net's Discord, forums, Telegram channels, and Townhall. Workshops will be recorded and shared on YouTube.

The project is divided into four milestones: Research, Analysis, Report Publishing, and Workshops, with a total budget of $41,998. The main risk is that recommendations may not be implemented, but the team plans to engage stakeholders, provide actionable recommendations, and track implementation progress to mitigate this risk.

Proposal Description

Compnay Name

Radical Ecosystems

Service Details

Without an ecosystem strategy, it's unlikely for the ecosystem to thrive. We will identify key levers to dramatically improve Singularity Net's Ecosystem's ROI through rigorous data collection, analysis, and workshops with key stakeholders.

Problem Description

What is Singularity Net's Ecosystem strategy? Without getting this right we will not be able to attract the best talent and create the most powerful innovations.

Solution Description

A Rigorous Builder centric strategy, based on interviews with Ecosystem builders and innovators, and expert assessment.

Risk and Mitigation

The Key risk is that our recommendations would not get implemented.

Our mitigation approach is the following:

(1) Engage and involve key stakeholders throughout this process.

(2) We have greatly influenced the Cardano and Mina ecosystems in the past and we know the appropriate approach to achieve success here as well:

We use thoughtfully articulated and actionable recommendations, taking feedback from stakeholders into account and achieving alignment.

(3) Specifically our workshops will include an explicit discussion and articulation of who's responsible for implementing the recommendation

so they can be tracked over time.

(4) If for some reason a high-impact recommendation will not be followed, we will create a follow-up proposal to accelerate the implementation of key recommendations.

(5) If our proposal is accepted we will submit a follow-up proposal for tracking the impact of following the recommendation over time. (Pool budget doesn't allow to include that in scope unfortunately)
