Jur, the upcoming Polkadot parachain building the DAO 2.0 stack, invites founders to pitch their ‘Startup Society’ ideas to notable figures from Web 3.0, including Tim Draper of Draper Associates, Ed Hesse of Energy Web and Trent McConaghy of Ocean Protocol for a chance to win a share of the $10,000 grand prize, along with the opportunity to launch their startup society through a dedicated grant program.
Unlike DAOs, startup societies are flexible founder-led forms of congregations that are value-based to let communities aggregate easily around a shared purpose.
With its’ DAO 2.0 stack, Jur aims to kick off the one-click country ecosystem to build the future of governance, enabling Web 3.0 communities with interoperability, growth, experimentation and evolution into network states.
Jur invites existing online community builders, influencers, DAOs and innovators to participate in the first cohort of the Startup Societies’ Founders Awards.
The awards will provide a platform for founders to experiment with new societal models and offer $2,000 and 1,000 JUR each to the top five startup society proposals.
Web 3.0 technologies are changing the way we think about community and governance.
Alessandro Palombo, founder of Jur, said,
“Jur believes that Web 3.0 requires simpler structures to enable community building and governance. That’s why we are developing an ecosystem to support startup societies, designed to be Web 3.0 native communities based on shared values and simple consensus-based decision-making.
“In addition, with the Startup Societies’ Founders Awards launch, we want to encourage further innovation and experimentation in this space.”
To keep the process decentralized and transparent, the evaluation process to shortlist the top 10 proposals will be undertaken by Jur community volunteers, along with a panel of experienced advisors including Zane Austen from Balaji’s team at The Network State and QJ, executive director of the ETH Community Fund, among others.
The Jur team and advisors will refine the shortlisted proposals to be presented to the judgesTim Draper, Ed Hesse and Trent McConaghy who will select the five winners to present their ideas live on demo day.
Ed Hess, one of the judges and founder of Energy Web, said,
“Startup societies offer an exciting new way for people to come together and work towards a shared purpose.
“Jur is building the tools and infrastructure needed to power the next generation of Web 3.0 native communities. I’m excited to be part of the Jur Startup Societies’ Founders Awards and see the innovative proposals presented.”
