I wanted to share info about a great service that seems relevant for this group of education tech entrepreneurs, especially if you’re 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.
What makes FD different:
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.
Meet other local people who are interested in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques and more general issues related to Search Engine Marketing (SEM). Gather and share advice and info on better ways to work with search engines and of course network and develop synergies.
