Co-Founder Speed Dating
Picking a co-founder is your most important decision. It’s more important than your product, market, and investors. Co-Founder Speed Dating aims to bring together talented entrepreneurs with different backgrounds and skill sets to start innovative new companies. All too often you know people with similar backgrounds and skills sets to your own. We help you find co-founders with complimentary skill sets. Entrepreneurship can be lonely. It’s important to have someone else there with you to help you ride out the lows and celebrate your successes. As the BES blog says,
.. finding a co-founder is a lot harder than finding a contractor or temporary help. So, how do you do it? As with all things people related, networking (off-line and on-line) is the answer. Yet, one of the biggest problems for early stage entrepreneurs, is that their social networks are small and local. We’ve been thinking about how we can help solve this problem (aside from manually introducing people we think might be a fit) and have come up with an idea: take all the early stage entrepreneurs, who are looking for co-founders, put them in a room together, and give them a chance to “speed date” with as many potential co-founders as they can.
How does it work? You’ll be matched with potential “dates” who have complimentary skills and interests. You’ll get to spend some focused time with each of them discussing you and your big ideas.
Who should attend?
- You have an idea that you want to pursue, but don’t have the right partner
- You are a superstar with a job, but open to joining a founding team if the right idea came your way
- You are an aspiring entrepreneur open to trying new ideas with the right mix of people
