Founder Dating is the people network for entrepreneurs to access and connect with advisors, cofounders and each other.
It’s never been more possible to start something- technology tools (AWS, Twilio, Shopify) are more available, getting to your first set of customers is more possible, access to capital is proliferating.
The site subsequently contacted me with the following email with the subject line, “VIP Invite”: Hi Drummond: We noticed your background and wanted to invite you to be a part of a select group of current Founder Dating members that are Advisors on FD: Advisors.
San Francisco-based Founder Dating has agreed to be sold to New York-based startup investment platform Onevest for an undisclosed amount, the companies announced today.
The site will now be housed under Onevest’s own founder matchmaking platform, Co Founders Lab.
Hi Drummond, I’ve just joined Founder Dating (no, it’s NOT romantic) – a handpicked network of entrepreneurs connecting with advisors and other talented entrepreneurs.
Can you do me a quick favor by leaving a quick vouch (aka reference) for me as an advisor? (To prove that you’re the real Drummond, you will be asked to use Linked In.) Unlike with some systems, this will help me make much more meaningful connections with potential advisees.
Cofounders – an invite-only network of people ready to start building something now 2.
Advisors – a network of people that want to help entrepreneurs and can be found by specific areas of expertise 3.
Thank you, [Name Withheld] Knowing that this entrepreneur was a very discriminating person who chose his words carefully, I considered this a ringing endorsement of this new site.
So I went out of my way to provide a vouch for him.
