Toronto Ruby Brigade Message Board › Entrepreneurs: connect with amazing people to start your next project/company
|Mani C. F.||
I wanted to share some info about a great service that's super relevant for this crew: FounderDating (no, it's not romantic). FounderDating (FD) is an invite-only, online network for entrepreneurs to connect with co-founders.
What makes FD different?
1. High Quality - members are carefully screened for quality and readiness (no recruiters, etc). Applications and members’ identities are confidential, but a few of the folks who are part of the network are former founders or early employees from SecureKey, Snapfish, Zynga, Loggly and Gilt, as well as former Google, Amazon, and Microsoft engineers, just to name a few.
2. Balanced - 50% engineering & 50% non-engineering.
3. Reach - FD’s online network allows you to connect with hundreds of people in your city and across North America to share ideas and begin building something you’re passionate about.
4. No Idea Necessary - FD is about the people, so you don’t need to have an idea, just be ready to work on a serious side project to start
There are lots of talented hackers and super experienced business folks already in the network seeking people like you to start that next gig.
Toronto is in its second round with an application deadline of October 31 and a kickoff coming up on November 14. We accept folks continuously and you'll have access to the online network (a LinkedIn style web app) before that date, so apply today -> http://members.founde...
