The Process

After hustling and raising funds, we announced MGD’s first round of funding. We opened applications on October 1st and received 30+ strong entries from all over the world. Upon narrowing down the submissions to 9 projects, we invited the finalists to a pitch day. All MGD members were invited and we anonymously scored teams across their level of innovation, impact and drive to push forward the decentralized ecosystem. We were proud to see each team have kick ass, female leadership!

The round was split between a General MGD Fund and a MakerDAO Fund (only open to projects utilizing the MakerDAO protocol).

🥁… And the winners are!

MGD General Fund 7K DAI — The Defiant

The Defiant is a burgeoning DeFi-focused media team. With explosive growth, consistent high-quality content and innovative web3-based plans for the future this powerhouse of a content team founded by MGD member, Camila Russo, was an easy pick.

MGD General Fund 5K DAI — DADA’s Invisible Economy

DADA, a fellow DAO founded by Beatriz Ramos and Judy Mam has the mission of ending the paradigm of the starving artist. Achieved in part by a doacratic economic system where artists receive a guaranteed income in exchange for contributing to the community, DADA successfully pioneers the use of DAO, NFT and community structures.

MakerDAO Fund 10K DAI — GoodGhosting

GoodGhosting is a gamified savings app plugged into DeFi stablecoin platforms. With great UX and plans of fiat-on ramp, this app founded by MGD member, Rachel Black, creates great financial habits and makes saving money fun!

In addition to $$, the winners also receive:

  • A security review with a member from the Quantstamp team

We’d also like to give a special shoutout to the other projects that came to pitch day!

Seeing the quality of all the badass women-led projects that applied and being able to contribute in a meaningful way legitimized the MGD mission. We are inspired and hopeful for another grant round in 2021, stay tuned!
