So since it’s been a while since Grants Committee has been established and as it seems, people are not taking the initiative to post their ideas, I think it would be a good move for the team to take the initiative and establish a committee that’s going to take the lead.
How would this work?
Idea Committee would have a job to collaborate with the Community,Team & Grants Committee in order to find the ideas to build on top of Tempus as well as agree on the funding allocation and terms.
Those ideas would then be presented to the community, which would have an option to apply to start working on them and receive funding based on the level of contribution and agreed milestones.
The team which applies to work on that specific idea, would need to be approved by Grants Committee and would later down the road, next to funding, receive Team’s advisory support as well as Marketing Exposure.
In this way, we’d not only potentially expand the Tempus Ecosystem, but also engage with the Community on a much higher level and ,equip’’ them with the right tools to succeed. Their success becomes Tempus success.
People would still have the freedom to apply with their own ideas to the Grants Committee, of course, but the Idea Committee would only be there to serve those who are great at what they do, but simply don’t know where to start with or perhaps can’t find the right team for it.
I would also suggest, that one of the jobs behind Idea Committee is to organize (at least once a week) a Co-Founder matchmaking where people from Tempus Community would get a chance to meet people who’ve shown interest for the specific idea proposed by the Idea Committee and potentially start working on it together.
The community would also be able to propose to specific ideas to the Idea Committee and in case their ideas get accepted and presented to the community, they would either become a founding member or simply get rewarded to their idea contribution - based on their preference.
I’d love to hear your opinion on this - this is just the initial draft behind the whole thing so I’m sure there’s plenty of potential to explore so I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments
