I know a lot of you have already started a side-project or company and a lot of you want to. Wanted to share about FounderDating (no, it's not romantic) since I know finding the right person can be a big challenge. FD is an invite-only, online network for entrepreneurs to start side projects & to connect with cofounders. I see some of you are already on but let's get more Chicago folks!
Some highlights of the network:
1) High caliber people - everyone is referenced/screened
2) 50% engineers
3) Reach - the network spans N.America, UK, Israel
Social change makers and web innovators have come together in cities across the nation to share ideas, network, and build community web resources and network. Now join us, so Chicago can grow more technology savvy social change organizations that benefit our local communities. Staff and volunteers of non-profits, web innovators, and any individuals pushing for change are encouraged to attend.
We encourage anyone who is interested in the intersection of tech and social good - tech encompasses everything from IT to social media, from software to hardware; social good encompasses everything from non-profits to NGOs, from small community coalitions to large formal organizations. Other groups may focus on the marketing and fundraising aspects of non-profits; we're an active community building and organizing group focused primarily on fostering collaboration and communication.
