Finding A Perfect Co-Founder

The first and by far most important decision you’ll make when starting a company is picking a co-founder. Much like marriage, there’s no science behind the process of pairing up, but there’s plenty of sites out their that will help you find “love”. What about a co-founder? One of the most common requests for help I hear from entrepreneurs is introductions to potential co-founders. It’s clear we need more efficient platforms for pairing up.

Two interesting initiatives came across my inbox in the same week:

1. FounderDating – an online network for entrepreneurs to connect and find co-founders. Think of it as an invite-only LinkedIn for co-founders. The network is being built up internationally and to “unlock” a city, 50+ founders from that city need to join. So yalla, get on it Tel Aviv.

2. The Junction’s Pair Up Night - Eden and team are hosting their second pair-up night after the hugely successful first event back in February.

Any other good options in Israel?

UPDATE: More online platforms for pairing up:
