Back by popular demand! Do you have an idea for a startup and you're looking for founders who can get as excited about your idea as you are?
Or -- are you looking for an early stage startup to join - even if the compensation up front is sweat equity instead of salary?
Then SpeedDating for Startups is for you.
Post your Idea
If you have an idea for a startup and are looking for cofounders, I encourage you to post some information about what it is (even if you need to be vague) so people looking for a startup can find you. To post your idea on the OTBC wiki, go to this link. (If you don't want to reveal anything about the idea online, at least consider talking about what skill sets you'd like to add to the team so readers will know whether or not there might be a fit.)
Post your Skill Set

Agenda for June 27
After some networking time, Carolynn Duncan will talk briefly about how to find cofounders. Then we'll have people who have a concept and are looking for cofounders give a 1 minute minute elevator pitch, have each of them head to their own corner of the room (with a sign so you can find them) and go back to networking to let people circulate around to check out the startups that sound interesting to them.
So mark your calendar, RSVP, and start honing your idea. We hope to see you on June 27!
