Project Description :page_facing_up:

Please describe why you are applying for this grant.
This conference will enable more people to access new knowledge even if some or most visitors are not developers, they are the employers of developers who will be able to support more open-source communities if they are learning about the importance of new technologies.

The whole conference is based on the idea that knowledge should be shared openly and freely. An additional sign of that is our 50 volunteering women of the association Alice in Blockchains that are organizing the event.
This conference is one part of this active female community that is sharing technology news on a daily basis to the whole group via telegram, but also organizing monthly live meetings with regional technology experts to promote knowledge sharing and contribute to the collective body of knowledge in the open-source community.

    Future Plans

Please include the following:

  • How you intend to use enhance, promote and support your project in the short term
    Support within the Croatian startup scene is huge and it enables the share of voice. On the other hand, this type of companies are financially not that strong to support the event. Sad that, the lack of knowledge within other sectors about the topic is one of the challenges the conference is planning to change.
    More accessible knowledge about Web3 will enable more engagement within various industries and markets.
  • The team’s long-term plans and intentions in relation to it. In other words, how will it be made sustainable?
    Each year there will be an even bigger conference with even more female speakers, female members organizing the event but most importantly, the knowledge will be even more accessible to everyone.
