Team: Awareness & SciCom WG contributors
Budget: 25,000 USD
Since its inception VitaDAO has gained clout in the Longevity Research Community through funding research and various other initiatives such as The Longevist, online symposia and onsite conferences. Moreover supporting conferences through sponsorship has helped to build trust, build connections for deal flow, and helped to recruit talent to the DAO.
In the previous 8 months we have sponsored Longevity Events for a total of ~20000 USD.
For the coming year we plan on ramping this up to build a larger and stronger longevity community, especially bringing in more researchers that contribute to the DAO.
Therefore, this proposal seeks to request a budget of 25,000 USD for the next ~6 month (until December 31st, 2023) to sponsor Longevity and Aging Conferences and Events and give the SciCom and Awareness WG decision power for which events to be sponsored. This way responsibility and governance for longevity conference sponsorship is clear, and people can be held accountable.
The money will be spent to sponsor 5-8 longevity events, across the globe and build a global presence. We will only sponsor conferences where VitaDAO people are present, and VitaDAO has a chance to present itself through either a poster, booth, panel, presentation, leading a session or organizing an entire event, and focus mainly on non-profit conferences.
