Building future-proof DAOs

The DAO ecosystem grew significantly during the bull run and is now facing shared struggles financially and socially.

-> We need experienced, collaborative solution design around the most pressing issues

-> We need to build resilience in the bear market through mutual support & resource management

Workshop topics are selected based on direct input from participants & partners, such as:

-> Pending regulation -> Public branding of the DAO space
-> Funding -> Resource Coordination
