Grant Description:

Ethereum Mexico is one of the biggest communities working towards Ethereum’s growth in Mexico, dedicated to educating individuals about blockchain technology and championing Ethereum’s values. We act as a link connecting the Ethereum community, the Ethereum Foundation, and local communities in Mexico.

In our pursuit of this transformative vision, we are actively seeking sponsors, and we aspire to include CoW Protocol as one of our valued sponsors. This is why we are applying for small grants to help make Ethereum Mexico 2023 a reality. Our track record includes active participation in significant events such as ETHMexico, #RoadToDevcon, and Devcon VI since June 2022. Ethereum Mexico is committed to going beyond mere market discussions and showcasing Ethereum’s true potential as a force for change.

Hi there! This looks interesting. Are you able to supply a previous “Final report and metrics evaluation” report for review? It would be good to see if sponsoring such events have a positive ROI for the DAO.

Interesting proposal, but just like Netrunner pointed, would be interested to see some data/reports about similar events and grants first, if those are available, even if such an event might not necessarily produce imediate positive results…

GM @netrunner.eth @Chim9!
I’m Bricia Guzmán, co-founder of the Ethereum México Community. Currently, I’m leading our efforts in sponsorship and grants for our upcoming event, Ethereum México 2023.

Thank you for taking the time to review our proposal. We had the pleasure of meeting your project at Devcon, and we are excited about the possibility of having your involvement at our event. Ethereum México 2023 is our most significant endeavor to date, and while it’s a big undertaking, we are fortunate to have Chuy, our experienced event coordinator, on board.

We have a strong track record of successful events. In our recent collaboration with Ledger, we organized five local events in various cities and conducted one virtual workshop. You can delve into the details and analytics from these events in our presentation, accessible via the following link:

This year, we’re expanding our reach with the “Road to Ethereum México,” comprising 12 different events in nine cities. You can keep up with our progress by referring to the following presentation, which provides insights into the evolution of Ethereum México throughout its existence:

We’re thrilled about the potential collaboration and the opportunity to showcase your project at our event. If you have any questions or require additional information, please don’t hesitate to reach out.


Hi, thanks for the Grant Application. In general with such tight timelines that have been mentioned, I don’t think that this Grant is something that I can support (especially given that the requested milestone is tomorrow). This aside though, while we are supportive of expanding the CoWMunity, and being inclusive across cultures / languages is definitely something that we want to endorse, I don’t think event sponsorship is really within the remit of the Grants Program.

For these kinds of events, I’d encourage you to better reach out to BD / Partnerships / Marketing at CoW if they wish to endorse this. For future applications (and discussion amongst the Grants Committee), I’d see grants that are suitable for CoWMunity Growth in this area to be things such as translation of documentation, translation of interfaces, translation of blog posts etc.

Thanks again for your application, and I hope that we can soon better serve the Mexican / Latam CoWmunity!

GM @mfw78! Our event is scheduled for October 21st, and we are open to adjusting payment days if needed to align with your requirements. The requested grant amount may not be substantial, and we appreciate your consideration. We presented this as a grant application based on market conditions. In the future, we will explore more suitable avenues.

If you believe that the appropriate approach is to engage with the Marketing team, could you kindly provide a contact person I can reach out to, or introduce us? My Telegram handle is @brichis. Thank you for your assistance.
