Ecosystem Fund Grant Process

Since announcing our Balancer ecosystem fund we have been overwhelmed by the interest from the community. In order to streamline the grant process and facilitate conversation around the grant requests we have created a standard template (see below) for all grantees and will be moving away from Discord for these discussions.

In order to be considered for a grant please copy the template’s markdown below, create a new post (under the category ecosystem-fund), and then we’ll let the community reply and follow-up privately with the next steps.

As a reminder grants do not necessarily need to be technical in nature.

Looking forward to seeing all the submissions! :rocket:
