Hey everyone! My name is Mike, I am researching Impact-oriented Economy (there is a thread with description)
Basically I would like to find out how to unite people from all over the world that are making positive environmental and social impact into one global community with decentralized governance, economy and enough resources to fix global problems and change our world to a better place.
I started my research inside of Lisbon Impact Hub community and now I would like to go global and study Global Impact Hub community of 16,000+ active members within 100+ locations across five continents, in more than 50 countries that consists of individuals, companies and organizations with high diversity of socio-economic attributes united and organized by the idea of global positive changes. The last global survey had conversion rate of 21%.
I set my-self a milestone - to produce report consisting of implementation plan ( ***Update v2: Covid19 changed a lot of plans, so now main focus is to create Manifest of Changes that will call for collaboration all other Hubs to find new business, governance and social models to protect Impact Community against the crisis) that we will present on Impact Hub Global Gathering: Vision 2030 (June 2nd-4th 2020) to the leading impact makers and influencers of the global community with aim to promote Aragon DAO and crypto-economy for transforming impact industry into the powerful decentralized conglomerate.
Scope of the proposal
***Update v2: Goals and deliverables
Main goal of this proposal is to on-board non-crypto community, represented by members of Impact Hubs of Europe, to Aragon DAO and to develop the methodology of non-crypto on-boarding, including lead generation chatbot, UX feedback gathering, video tutorials, Q&A webinars and incentive model. That’s why I post here my funding proposal consisting of 3 phases:
Surveys for gathering general information about community members and their activities for the classification, evaluation and focus-group forming - 2-3 weeks part-time - €500 = 548 DAI.
Questions will be composed as follows:
1.2. Contacts, location, industry, employment status;
1.3. Professional activity, impact activity, activity average costs, transactional frequency, funding sources types (philanthropy, investments, grants, bootstrapping);
1.4. Collaboration type and used communication network, type and rating of the issues;
1.5. Relations to digital innovations, decentralized governance, crowdfunding.
*** update v1: modification of the survey from Eutopiagreen to build and share database of impact projects:
*** update v2: survey will be implemented with Chatbot
Interviews for gathering in-depth information about existing socio-economic elements, interaction between them and experienced problems for qualitative analysis of the focus group - 4-5 weeks full-time, €2000 = 2193 DAI. Questions will be composed as follows:
2.1. Professional and impact activity description, goals;
2.2. Funding process and objectives, costs structure;
2.3. Impact generation process, measurements and KPIs;
2.4. Current issues and troubles, possible solutions;
2.5. Impact token user stories covering economic, collaboration and governance activities.
***update v2: €500+ will be stored to incentivize management teams and community members to participate in on-boarding process; exact amount depends on conversion rate from leads to customers
Communication with Impact Hubs management teams for consulting and onboarding of their local communities to Aragon Network using Rinkeby test organization - 4-5 weeks part-time, €1000 = 1096 DAI. Will cover following topics:
3.1. Reputation system for community rewarding and tracking;
3.2. Decentralized Finance and decision making for impact facilitation;
3.3. Impact-oriented economy implementation plan.
***update v2: communication will be performed and recorded in form of webinars with targeted groups of managers and participants; some of the test DAOs will be converted in fully functional mainnet applications via incentive model.
Collected data will be anonymized and divided into two datasets - social and financial to prevent reverse engineering personalization, and analyzed to produce intelligence about economic structure, networking channels and operational flow of the selected community, that will define types of social collaboration, economic dependencies, average financial volumes of demand and supply, revenue and cost streams routing, indicators of impact measurement, incentives and user experience cases. This data will be used to define suitable economic models, requirements for software infrastructure and to build a formal proposal to the Impact Hub Global network.
I consider several levels of success of my work ***Update v1: including database of social enterprises:
Minimal result - report, formal proposal for Impact Hubs, onboarding of Lisbon Impact Hub and on-boarding methodology report;
***update v2: minimal result includes full report on communication, interviewing and on-boarding process including all used and created materials to provide future consultants with non-crypto on-barding framework.
Normal result - minimal result + on-boarding of Madrid Impact Hub;
Great result - minimal result + on-boarding of 3+ hubs from different countries, forming a team for economy development and on-boarding facilitation.
This research might be a beginning for a great project that will connect Aragon community with Impact Industry and bring more human and financial resources into our ecosystem!
