Wanted to share info. about a great service that seems super relevant for this crew – FounderDating (no, it’s not romantic). Norfolk Area of FounderDating is kicking off Round 2 of accepting applications into this private group for people looking to find a Co-Founder of their startup business!
FounderDating (FD) is an invite-only, online network for entrepreneurs to connect with cofounders. What makes them different?
- 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: stackmob, snapfish, Zynga, Loggly and Gilt just to name a few.
- Balanced – 50% engineering & 50% non-engineering
- 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
Upcoming Round: September 20th, 2012 Norfolk Area
Deadline to Apply: September 10th, 2012 Apply Now http://members.founderdating.com/application/
If you have applied in the past and received an email about not being accepted in Round 1 you will be considered for an invite in Round 2 Zack Miller and I can work with any type of groups like alumi associations, professional organizations, and government agencies to ensure their members know about FounderDating and can apply.
