We conducted a mid-season retro in S6. We have implemented most of the outputs and we are on the final stages of creating our pitch deck


General Partnership structure:

For any event seeking partnership we propose the following partnership structure. The actually final version of the partnership might vary depending on the realities of the actual event

Bankless DAO offers:

  1. A 100 word write up in the Weekly Rollup newsletter about the event 1 month prior to the event
  2. A 250 word write up in the Weekly Rollup newsletter summarising the event, posted latest 1 week after the event
  3. Five posts on BanklessDAO social pages as well as a translated version of the same info on the social pages of the International Media Node(s) relevant to the location of the event. The posts will be made 1 each week for 5 weeks in a row leading up to the event.
  4. Retweet up to 5 posts from the event organizer, with max 1 retweet per week for 5 consecutive weeks leading up to the event
  5. A shout out for the event in BanklessDAO Community Call (internal weekly meeting), as well as the relevant IMN CC
  6. At least 1 person from bDAO who films key highlights and interviews relevant participants
  7. A crew which posts YouTube shorts (30-60 seconds long) and a 1 min recap of the event on the bDAO YT channel. Depending on the availability of funds, contributors and speakers, we will also produce 2-5 min interviews.

In return BanklessDAO asks the event organizers for:

  • At least 5 backstage/Media passes for the entire event
  • Have BanklessDAO listed as an official media partner for the event
  • Tweet about this partnership in the official twitter channel of the event
  • To offer 5 normal tickets - 3 for chosen BanklessDAO members and 2 which can be used as giveaways via social media
  • Reserve a 30 min slot for a speaker from BanklessDAO
  • Send the exact text and image which should be tweeted out

The budget for each event and the number of people attending each event should adapt to the event reach (footfall) and contributor availability. We suggest the following matrix for this allocation:

Financial Implications

We propose that contributors are remunerated in a performance based unlock where upon funds are disbursed on completion of certain predefined conditions for each event.

All roles are paid when

  1. All AV content is uploaded on YT
  2. All text content is published on twitter & weekly rollup.

In order to execute payments, the partnership manager sends a CSV file to the multi-sig upon delivery of above items. The payment for roles is divided into fixed share and variable share.

Payment structure:

All payments for seasonal roles will be added on top of the event budget instead of subtracting from the budget.

Fixed Share

  • 10% allocation to the Project Manager
  • 5% allocation to the Marketing Department
  • 10% allocation to the Partnership Manager
  • 5% allocation to the AV coordinator
  • 5 % allocation to the Social Media team

Variable share [Client manager]

  • 1000 BANK for each lead contacted. Qualification criteria: Complete CRM entry, fill out as much info as possible, verify contacts.
  • 2000 BANK for running a discovery call and filling up the call report template
  • 5% of each deal closed

Variable share [Finance manager]

  • 1000 BANK/hr to the Finance Manager

The Partnership Manager, decides the allocation of the rest of the budget between the on-site team, reimbursements and other related expenses for each event

Payment Policy:* All expenses for any event are paid with a single transaction at the end of the event.*

S9 Budget:

7 High profile events: 100,000 BANK x 7 = 700,000 BANK

3 Medium profile events: 50000 BANK x 2 = 100,000 BANK

5 Smaller events: 20000 BANK x 5 = 100,000 BANK

S9 Total: 900,000 BANK
