Co-Founder Speed Dating – #2
Want to join a startup? Are you looking for that special co-founder to ‘complete you’?
We talk to a ton of founders, and many of them are at the idea stage and need a business or technical partner to launch their startup. Other teams are looking for “employee #1” – that first person that will come on board and be part of an awesome team and culture early on.
If you have a tech startup and need someone else’s skills to round out your own, or have some skills and drive, but not the idea (yet), come find your match in an organized one-on-one speed dating session. Open to all interested, both business (marketing, biz dev and finance) and techies (devs, UX and design).
We’ll match you up with potential co-founders based on what you’re looking for, and you’ll get 5 minutes with each of them to pitch yourself, hear their pitch, and see if there’s a fit.
We’ll be maxing out around 30 people, so you’ll get to spend some quality time with 10-12 individuals, with time afterwards to follow up. Be sure to register early! If you can’t make it – be sure to cancel for the folks on the waitlist!
Location: Local 002 Tavern, 2 Richard Way SW (near Mount Royal University)
Time: 7:00pm – 9:00pm
“Sometimes great ideas just need a great co-founder; this is where you find someone to jump into the fray with you!”
To get started, do the following steps:
- Register for the event here.
- Browse the people who have registered, scope some of them out that look interesting to you! If there’s someone you really want to meet,make sure to write down their name and seek them out at the event (they will be flattered you sought them out!)
- Show up with a fistful of business cards, and participate in 5 minute one-on-ones.
This event will likely sell out (like last time) and tickets are available on a first come first serve basis! Once a ticket type is sold out, there are no more available.
