Who's looking for a cofounder in May 2019?

Being a solo founder is tough. Finding a co-founder who's a good match isn't much easier, but if both of you are on Indie Hackers already, that's a start!

Post below if you're looking for partner or a co-founder. Include things like…

  • your location, or if you're open to a remote partnership
  • whether or not you have an idea, or if you're open to one
  • if you've got an idea, info on how much progress you've made
  • the skills and experience you bring to the table vs what you're looking for
  • your values and goals (cofounders should be aligned on this stuff!)

    I'm a full-stack Software Engineer currently looking for an interesting project I could into.

    🗺 Location: I'm based in Melbourne, Australia. But would also be open to a remote partnership.

    💡 Idea: I have a few ideas including my recently launched side-project codepusher.io. However, I'm also open to any ideas you might be working on.

    👨‍💻 Skills: As a technical team member I can help build and iterate any solution. I have a wide range of experiences which includes frontend, backend, and deployment. If you want to see my recent work you can have a look at https://codepusher.io. I also wrote a few articles at https://medium.com/codepusher which go over how I built some of the core features.

    🚀 Values: I'm interested in building products that people want. I love coding, but I also love it more knowing what I build will solve real-world problems.

    Happy to team up with non-technical or technical founders. Ping me if you're interested!

    Im software developer, I've built several project related to gaming, entrepreneurship, sport. I've looking for co-founders for a lot of years and I feel they always lack of entrepreneur education, experience and most of them speaks more than acts. Most of my projects have been done alone but if you re interested in building projects with nothing, you can contact me. I've recently built networkup.io which does the same mission than your current post :P gl all ^^

    A friend of mine is a strong non-tech solo founder who would love to find a proper techie partner.

    She's made a surprising amount of progress without a tech team (1 paying customer with 100 employees, 2 or 3 trials with businesses with 200-500 employees, an MVP which isn't perfect but has gotten her in the door. She's got a background in private equity and managing tech teams, so she's a bit more clued in to both the money and product side than most people in her position would be. Based in London but probably open to a remote collaboration.

    She's building software to help prevent and recover from burnout at work and intends to stay in that space, so it would mean shifting ideas toward hers.

    Happy to connect if anyone is interested in chatting. [email protected]

    I'm a technical guy living in Belgium. Over the past few years I created and launched several side projects (web, mobile) and turned them in to live products. I'm open for a remote partnership and am interested in different kinds of markets.

    I can take full technical ownership of a product as well as bring ideas to the table to further expand or improve it. In the past I worked on mainly web applications (scalable) and mobile (certified by Google for Android, launched 1 Android app with 600k+ downloads and worked on several react-native apps).

    Looking forward to meet you!

    I am Boston based founder of a B2B services marketplace and looking for a tech co-founder.

    I have an MVP am going live with my Beta client this week. I have domain expertise and my skills are in sales/ marketing/ product commercialization.

    What I am looking for is a dynamic tech expert based out of Boston with expertise in developing services marketplace(s). The individual should care about Customer First, Keeping it Simple, Improving everyday, and earning their keep. If interested, ping me.

    1. 1

      I am in Boston, 15+ experience in IT, please ping me in skype: sl dot sniffer

        Will ping you.....was tied up in client meetings

    I am!

    I am a solo founder starting Retainable (www.retainable.com) -- predictive churn analytics for B2B SaaS startups. Churn is a huge hindrance to many saas companies, and I believe that many do not know how to understand the data that is gathered and how to identify WHO will be churning, and why.

    I am based in Austin, TX, totally open to a remote partnership. I am currently building the MVP with freelance developers (which I wrote about here https://genfurukawa.com/i-have-started-product-development-heres-how/ ), and I am working on the marketing site, starting with laying the foundation for organic traffic by putting out content for high volume relevant keywords that I am currently working through.

    I have been working on this full time for about 4 weeks. And looking for a full stack Python developer, ideally with experience with Data Science.

    I'm a full stack digital marketer--spent the past ~4 years leading the marketing team at Jungle Scout where I was one of the first hires (Amazon product research SaaS tool) to be the industry leader in the space--250k customers, grew to 5 stand alone SaaS products and a marketplace, etc, and from a small amount of revenue to a lot (we didn't disclose revenue)....

    1. 1

      Interested to know more about your business model, data acquisition, and how you do insight generation. Are you building a model per customer based on their independent features or do you have some kind of master “churn” model that you score against?

      1. 1

        hey @pbl24, great questions! I do not have definitive answers to everything, still need to validate that this is in fact a viable solution (however I have done extensive research with target customers and experienced the challenge myself, churn is one of the big problems with achieving saas growth ).

        But in short, this is going to be gathering existing historical customer data, analyzing that data, and applying that to the current customer base. so no master churn model per se, but unique to each company, although the baseline data (churn events, subscription billed, etc) help contribute to a universal model. does that make sense? definitely happy to discuss more...

        1. 1

          I hear you. Churn is a huge problem. What type of user interest have you been able to establish? Are most interested businesses in the situation where they are having issues with churn, but don't really know what to do about it? I have a few thoughts on the problem if you're interested in reaching out.

    I have a physical product and a mobile app built with react native that’s still in the early stages. I have plans to improve the app, build a web-app and add more physical products.

    Please feel free to contact me if you’re interested. Thanks :)

    Hi everyone! I'm located in the Boston metro area. I'd prefer a local partner.

    I'm currently building a next-generation stateful serverless platform. I have all the technical skills and experience to code all of it (Front-end to OS bootloader).

    I've been working on Warpdrive for about 9 months. I've written proofs of concept for each technical risk. I'm about 40% through stitching all the pieces parts together into an MRP (minimum remarkable product) which I intend to release on 7/12/19.

    I would love to find a co-founder who could help me with the business end of things. I have detailed plans for the next few years of releases and business activity.

    I'd be happy to speak to anyone whose interested in helping me out: [email protected].

    thanks!

    Seeking a technical co-founder.

    1. NYC - but open to remote partnership

    2. I already have an idea - a B2B sales relationship intelligence tool for the construction industry

    3. Built the initial prototype using Bubble.is. Currently at $5.1K MRR. Used to be at $7.6K (nov 2018) but experienced technical hurdles which resulted in churn. Stopped sales entirely. Re-building the entire application. Launching alpha end of month.

    4. I'm an entrepreneur. Have been building businesses since 2001 (food e-commerce, construction b2b marketplace). Currently seeking a technical co-founder w/ familiarity on: RoR, PostreSQL, GraphQL, React, TypeScript, Apollo, Blueprint.

    5. Don't have any intentions on seeking VC capital for this business. Looking to work with someone smart, honest, and self aware. Must be a great communicator - as I find miscommunication to be the source of most failed partnerships/projects. I believe in automation before throwing money at the problem i.e. hiring. Someone who can own the entire tech stack while also balancing business needs. I believe working sanely (<40 hrs/wk)

    I'm looking for a remote co-founder for Quote Genius (http://quotegenius.xyz) an inspirational quote media generator for social media that I launched 2 months ago.

    The mvp helped me confirm the idea and I already have some customers. I tried to sell the product via 1kprojects and got a few offers motivating me to grow the project.

    I have a backlog of features that I would like to implement but would like to have a digital marketing expert helping me grow the project.

    I would like to implement things like SEO, content marketing and adwords the right way so if that's something you really know how to do I'm up for it.

    My expertise is on the development side and I would love to "exchange skills" with you. So I'm willing to teach you how to code and how the app works if you teach me how you are growing the app.

    The goal is to leave the project working and have it bring a passive income. I'm offering a 8020 split on the profits and the opportunity to learn coding. Please contact me at [email protected] if you are interested!
