Can anyone apply?
Anyone can apply, but in order to make sure founders get the most out of the network we keep the network invite-only. Just fill out the application to request an invite.
So, is this a meetup?
Nope, not at all! While we love and appreciate meetups, this isn’t one. FounderDating is an online network of talented entrepreneurs looking for cofounders. Every few months we invite a round of new members to the network. We welcome them and introduce them to the other members in their round with an initial event. But then they get access to the online network of all members. Think of it as an invite-only Linkedin for finding co-founders.
Do I need an idea to apply?
DEFINITELY NOT! You just need to be committed to starting your own thing. We have a mix of people, some with and some without ideas. We thinks it’s more about the people, than the exact ideas. We always say, “ideas change, people (rarely) do.”
What is the mix of people in the network?
We strive to maintain a balanced set of backgrounds and experiences. It’s about 50% engineering backgrounds and 50% business/product/other. Some people have ideas already and some people are just looking to be part of something awesome.
Can I invite other people to the network?
Sure, you can invite/nominate them to apply but only invite them if they’re kick-ass and you would join them in a startup or write a check out of your bank account to fund their next company. Nominate people here.
Does it cost money?
There is no fee to apply. There is a fee to join FounderDating for those invited. We put a ton of effort into building a valuable community of vetted entrepreneurs and access to that network – online and offline – will help you get to the next step and thus costs a little bit.
