Hi guys,
My name is Andres Buritica. I am a Python developer and I recently started volunteering with the L.A. branch of FounderDating ( I have approached the problem of creating my own startup like any other engineering problem--by reading the manual. What I learned was that a team with a complimentary skill set has a greater chance at success and that sole-founders have very little chance of making it. Working towards this goal I came across FounderDating. I have met some great people and I recently found the team I've been looking for. Here are some highlights about FounderDating:

- No people who "need a developer to implement an idea." - This idea is against our principles
- High Quality - A few of the folks who are part of the network are former founders or early employees from: stackmob, snapfish, Zynga, Loggly and Gilt just to name a few. 
- Balanced - 50% engineering & 50% non-engineering
- No Idea Necessary - FounderDating is about the people, so you don’t need to have an idea, just be ready to work on a serious side project.
- Invite-only - We carefully screen applicants. Only the best are accepted.
- Online network - Members can contact potential cofounders from every major city on our private, online network.

We are always looking for talented folk to join our network. Our next kick-off is December 11th and the apply-by-date is November 26th. Anyone in the group can apply here
