- Polka Ecosystem (Bert)
This is a v0.1 customer journey in the community from not knowing anything to building a product on Robonomics with the materials and touchpoints. What's missing is a link between the school and developing own product. Maybe a hackathon can help with that, though usually, hackathons produce weak business ideas (mostly tech experiments).
I'd recommend identifying various use cases with the community and then run a hackathon based on the use cases to which people applied. Then engineers could focus on the development while marketers have better products to work with.

Based on the requests from the community
Attracting passionate people
: The most important thing to do! If you haven't read Azimov or TechCrunch it won't work. We need more fans of science-fiction. Working with the wrong people can lead to decision making based on financial benefits rather than vision. So we need to spread the right word to attract more ideological allies from influential organizations to our community and support networking.
Supporting adoption and integration
- Maintaining the community infrastructure (wiki, forum, chat group, social media) – many suggestions were proposed in connection to the school
- Running incubation/acceleration programs, brainstorms etc.
- Inviting stakeholders into collaboration projects
- Empowering teams to do their own steps on the journey.
Education / Certification
: It's a good and needed task for the sustainable community. A spot came in May and developers can rent it to take a course created by our scientists from ITMO. Developers will receive a certificate of expertise with Boston Dynamics robots. Crazy useful when applying for a job and they will be familiar with our technology.
Another idea from touches the courses and webinars on Web 3 / Rust.
Paid services is considered to be the best model, though commissions on this stage could be minimal and probably won't support enough the developing projects.
So we can use other mechanisms in order to support the ecosystem including
