Get started on a side project or startup
Sunday, March 23, 2014 2:18 PM
I wanted to share info about a great service that seems relevant for this group, especially if you’re even just thinking about starting a company, or looking for advisors for a current startup. Founder Dating
(FD) is an invite-only, online network for entrepreneurs to connect with potential cofounders and advisors.
Some highlights of the network:
High Quality: each member is carefully screened for quality and readiness - no recruiters or smarmy sales pitches. Identities are confidential, but the community includes former founders and early employees from Stackmob, Gilt, Twitter, Loggly and Facebook, to name a few.
- Balanced: the community is strictly 50% engineering and 50% non-engineering.
- Global Reach: FD’s online network allows you to connect with people across 23 cities for access to the best entrepreneurial resources without the barriers of a local meetup.
- No Idea Necessary: Just be ready to work on a serious side project.
Upcoming NYC deadline: April 27
Hope that helps,
