Speed Dating Co-Founders

Finding a co-founder is like trying to find a best friend. I've worked for 6+ years in a co-founded startup so I know what kind of conflicts can arise when the heat is on. Often you don't know what's someone like until it's too late to change your choice.

I decided to start hosting StartUp Socials (virtual speed dating for entrepreneurs). Rather than just chat, everyone would be put into small teams and work on different tasks to see how well you work together.

The tasks would be related to what most people need to go through when building a business and could make it much easier to see if you're a good fit with someone else. Things like pitching your idea, negotiating, and problem-solving.

Love to get feedback and if you're interested I build a waiting list sign-up.

    Great idea, Bobby. How would you prefer to be contacted about this?

      I'd say sign up for the wait list. If I can get at least 6 people I'll email everyone a zoom link and more details for the example tasks.
