“You must be the change you wish to see in the world” -Gandhi
We accept applications all year round, however for the Yearly Awards, we close the applications in October to reveal the selected awardees in December.
As a foundation whose mission is to see the implementation of blockchain technology based solutions that offer a positive transformation for humanity, we have developed a virtual launching pad approach, namely the Catalyzer Program, that allows us to closely work with projects to create a work plan that shapes their concept, validates their use case, develops a sustainable business model and connects the dots to allow them to build partnerships and leverage collaboration.
We have developed a comprehensive approach to the process that increases the chances of success for the awardees and helps in securing the investments for the Investors.
1- Identify, Vet, Select
2- Create Milestone plan with a business and technical roadmap
3- Support ongoing work/activities with coaching from the b4H team and mentoring from our network
4- Help design pilot or implementation plan, along with supporting the execution
5- Establish links to potential partnerships within the ecosystem
At the Latin America Bitcoin Conference (LaBitConf) we announce the nominees and selected recipients of the ‘Dreamers’ and ‘Shapers’ awards. We use our social media channels to announce the short-listed 'Nominees' and subsequently the Awardees.
All applicants that make it to the Nominees list are invited to join the b4H Community and can always count on our support.
Those initiatives that meet the qualifications of high potential, impactful projects with a strong use case of the blockchain technology for positive impact.
The ‘Dreamers’ would be considered the projects that will initiate the Catalyzer Program 2020. Projects that qualify under the ‘Dreamers’ award will be further supported by b4H ecosystem of partners and the #Coalitions4GOOD movement.
Initiatives that have already demonstrated a strong use case or product that falls under the social/environmental impact to make the world a better place. These projects are generally more advanced in their concept and can serve as models for the ‘dreamers’.
This category is viewed as beyond the Catalyzer Program’s goals and would benefit from the brand awareness, media coverage, use case promotion and invitation to Labitconf to present their progress.
Projects that apply for the award are not aware in which category they will fit. It is up to the assessors to determine in which category is the project must likely fall under. Call for application usually takes place during the year, making it public at the beginning of the year and setting a deadline in October. This year’s deadline for application was Oct 21.
