What is the ideal profile of a founding member?

The ideal profile of a founding member revolves around our event platform, which caters specifically to universities and nonprofits. We seek individuals or organizations that fit the description of a mid-sized academic or nonprofit event organizer, hosting around 10-20 events annually. We cannot accommodate organizers who plan to host an excessive number of events. For instance, it would not be sustainable for us to offer founding membership to someone who intends to organize 200 events per year as a founding member.

The founding members should also be willing to contribute their valuable insights and ideas to shape the future of the Dryfta platform and align with our focus on producing new knowledge through helping academia and nonprofits manage their conferences. It is by attracting founding members who share our vision and objectives that we can collectively work towards enhancing the event management experience within the academic and nonprofit sectors.
