Title: Odyssey DAO
Description: Odyssey is a learning DAO offering free educational resources. We currently have various guides on the Web3 ecosystem. We launched a People of Web3 page to show people’s journey into this space. We are in the process of launching the Companies of Web3 section with company profiles.
Manifesto/Vision: A learning DAO creating quality, free web3 education to onboard the next 1 million people to Web3.
Problem: Many people have valuable skillsets and are curious about Web3, but don’t have a trusted place to start. We want to be the place that can help guide people into this space safely and give them the tools to participate in the ecosystem as DAO contributors, employees, investors and active users of protocols.
We have heard from companies and DAOs about the challenges of onboarding in the Web3 space. Rather than companies starting from scratch with their own content, we want to be the place that companies can send their employees, and DAOs can send new contributors to get up to speed and learn. Our community is inclusive and our active discord is a place to ask questions, share resources and learn from each other. We have held events open to the public on topics such as wallet security and a panel of Web3 folks to talk about their Web3 journeys.
We believe that Odyssey is the best place to start your journey into Web3 and we want to feature companies and DAOs that would interest these curious new folks in this space.
We will use the grant to:
- Complete our free learning paths for DeFi, NFTs, and DAOs: Odyssey - Learning Pathways
- Do a deep dive profile on Rally in our upcoming web3 company section:
We will leverage our community and network to promote our profile on Rally. We would be happy to work with the Rally team to tailor our profile to your needs. We want to introduce Rally to new folks in the Web3 space.
Progress: We launched in December 2021 and have already reached a 15K audience (social, email) and have a community of 5,000+ tech professionals.
We won Product Hunt’s 2021 Golden Kitty Education award.
Differentiation: There is a lot of Web3 education content out there, but much of it is disorganized and not approachable for beginners. Odyssey is offering concise education guides to help onboard folks into Web3. We have published paths on NFT, DeFi, DAOs and Web3. We pair these guides with learning sessions open to the public.
We are in the process of translating all of our guides to other languages as well.
Odyssey is led by:
- Peter (Product lead at Reddit, Ex-Twitch, Meta)
- Mark (On Deck chapter lead, ex-Amazon PM)
- Wenda (Ex-product at top ecommerce in Southeast Asia)
- Louie (Product in EdTech)
We have a strong core contributor base of 25+ people who work on content, design, growth and community building.
Grant Request $: We are seeking a grant of $10,000 USD to fund this endeavor.
