GARI 🤝 Superteam
We’re partnering with SuperteamDAO to sponsor a $100,000 pool of grants to fund anyone building the creator economy on Solana.
The program is designed to engage the greater Web3 community in building the next generation of content creation, DAO tooling, public goods, and Open AI initiatives. We believe this will not only benefit GARI-DAO, but also the Solana ecosystem as a whole.
The grant program will be distributed in partnership with SuperteamDAO. With a proven track record of creating value in the Web3 ecosystem, we believe SuperteamDAO is the perfect partner to help us attract, identify, and develop high talent individuals.
The grants will be distributed through two avenues:
Instagrants are Superteam's proven model for grant making. Grant applications take less than 15 minutes and are approved in a matter of days, rather than weeks. Grant applicants can come from inside or outside the GARI/Superteam communities. Recipients will receive between $1,000 - $10,000 in equity-free funding to build ideas suited to the GARI and Solana ecosystems.
For projects that specifically benefit the GARI DAO, we will utilize the "Missions" offering of Superteam to put out RFPs. These projects will be given $10,000+ in funding to build out tools that relate to GARI's specific goals.
Grants that are below $5,000 shall be instantly approved during the weekly office hour calls that are conducted by GARI Stewards with the Superteam advisory board (see below).
Grants that are $5,000 - $10,000 shall follow the traditional Instagrant process that’s followed within Superteam DAO. If necessary, the grants will be disbursed based on milestones.
GARI missions that are $10,000+ will undergo extra curation and will involve weekly/biweekly standups for quality deliverables. Milestone-based payments will be required in most instances.

Community Advisory Board
To further cement our partnership, we will create a first-of-its-kind Community Advisory Board. This board will be composed of Superteam Members, selected by the GARI team with input from the Superteam community. The advisory board will have the following responsibilities:
Holding weekly office hour calls with the GARI team
Reviewing and managing grant applications which will be approved by the GARI team
Generate ideas for new Instagrants/Missions that fulfill the program objectives
Although most grant programs are autonomous in nature, the GARI team believes in the value of consistent mentorship to ensure the grant funds are used to their maximum potential. For this reason, the grant winners will also be invited to meet with the Community Advisory Board for advice and feedback on a regular basis.
How to Get Involved
If you have an idea that would benefit the Solana creator ecosystem, we’d love to see your application. Here are a few examples of the types of ideas we’d love to give grants to:
In-depth content creation on the Web3 creator economy
Tools that make it easier for creators to build, engage, and monetize their audiences
Strategies that generate value for the GARI community specifically by increasing engagement
DAOs that can support and service GARI DAO
Anything and everything else that supports creators on Solana
Don’t worry if your idea isn’t represented on the list above - apply for a grant and we’ll see what we can do.
Ultimately, we hope this program accelerates the adoption of Solana as the chain of choice for creators. We are particularly hopeful that a number of public goods will be created through this partnership that can be leveraged by GARI DAO and everyone else building towards a vibrant creator economy on Solana.
We can’t wait to see what our communities build together!
