    do you mean stanford? do you have any connections to these universities?

    Youngtect 03/01/2018 17:12

    Yes, we mean Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. Yes, we do have affiliates at these Universities.

    Youngtect is my partner. He is correct. Sorry for the typo.

  • mastin 03/01/2018 10:04

    Hi! Why did you set the limit "One event per University per year"? Does it mean the last meet up will be in 3 years time? Why didn't you mentioned 4 Universities while the proposal doesn't cover all of them? Also, more detailed budget allocation explanation on forum would make it easier for you to succeed.

    mastin 03/01/2018 10:06

    Correction "Why did you mentioned"

    Youngtect 03/01/2018 17:15

    Our goal is to have 4 events total for 2018. One event per University which are listed. We would like to repeat again for 2019 and increase the amount of events over time.

    sysit01 03/01/2018 17:35

    Youngtect is my partner. He is correct. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    sounds good. How many members are working for this project?

    Youngtect 03/01/2018 17:20

    Thank you! There are 3 members working on this project. In addition, we are also coordinating with the Smartcash Community Task Force and receiving input from them.

    What kind of events do you have in mind exactly? I assume you are talking about presentations about SmartCash? How will you go about promoting them? How many people are you looking to attract to these events? How did you come up with the cost of $1250 per event? 750$ for a bbq event seems a quite expensive to me... How many people are you expecting to have at those bbqs? You need to provide a more detailed breakdown of your goals, methods, and budget. Your proposal is very scant on details...

    Hey Honeybooboo, The events are to promote and educate people about Smartcash. We will use the android mobile App and web wallet as a demo. We will show people about the work that was done in Venezuela. We are looking to sign up 20-50 people to our email list at each event. We did a cost estimate, please see below. Thank you,
