Skills required
Creativity & Imagination
Mission details
Theme: Scientific Research

- Most of us are familiar with the likes of Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble, AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline and IBM Research.

- But while these scientific research corporations are both numerous and diverse, they are all dependent on a trusted, centralized entity.

- How would you reimagine a scientific research corporation in the context of a DAO?


- Pitch us with a concept that reinvents any scientific research corporation as a DAO.

- For example, what would AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline or IBM Research look like as a DAO?

- Pick one scientific research corporation and develop your DAO idea in the form of a pitch deck, lightpaper (text document) or infographic.

- Think beyond the likes of VitaDAO, Molecule, PsyDAO, LabDAO, GenomesDAO and other existing DeSci DAOs.

The structure of your pitch

1. The Vision and Value Proposition

- A very brief overview of your business and the value that you provide to the market.

- Keep it short and simple. A few sentences max.

2. The problem you’re solving

- What is broken about the current Web2 equivalent?

- Why is this an important problem to solve?

3. Target market and opportunity

- What is the total market size and how do you position your solution in the market?

- Tell the story about the scope and scale of the problem you are solving.

4. Your DAO solution

- Describe your scientific research organisation in the context of a DAO.

- How does it work?

- How is ownership or membership defined in the context of researchers, scientists, engineers & technologists?

- What roles do the DAO’s native token and NFT's play?

- What are the benefits of operating as a DAO?

- Include any other details which make your solution unique and innovative.

Points to note

- This is not a proper pitch to raise venture capital, so don’t include a roadmap, marketing strategy, team or any financials.

- Don’t get technical, even a 10 year old should be able to understand it.

- Blow us away with your creativity, communication and simplicity.
