Founder2be in the media
The media loves Founder2be and we want to share this love with you:
"Founder2be, the Helsinki-based co-founder finding network, is now operating in more than 100 countries, having expanded to accept would-be co-founders living in Africa and Australia. The network was already accepting applications from Europe, the U.S. and Asia — and says it’s the first co-founder finding network operating across all five continents (Antarctica not being a hotbet of startup activity). Founder2be [...] is now apparently the biggest such dedicated network. [...] It now has more than 15,000 registered users [...]. [...] Founder2be is powering “a few thousand” introductions per month."
"The Founder2be.com process is familiar to anyone who’s ever been exposed to online dating. People sign up for the service and create a profile that reflects what they are all about [...]. Maida Swenson-Fortune, CEO of an online art-buying platform called Cureeo, found her CTO on Founder2be. Abid Ali had experience as a web developer, user interface designer and was already a veteran of several startups before he linked up with Swenson-Fortune."
"So she [Maida] started looking for a partner. She considered peers from her MBA program [...]. She interviewed people she found at tech meet-ups, but with no luck. Finally, she tried Founder2be, an online service that helps entrepreneurs find co-founders. There, she met Abid Ali, who now [...] is the company's CTO."
"But how are you supposed to find the person with whom you’ll hunker down to build the company you’re so passionate about? Well, there’s [...] Founder2be, for the Match.com types."
"Founder2be is like Internet dating for tech entrepreneurs looking for co-founders."
The Next Web
"How many would-be entrepreneurs out there have had a potentially fantastic idea, but can’t find the right people to help them make it a reality? Helping people find the right co-founders for their startups is the idea behind Founder2be [...]."
"Founder2be is a sort of online meeting place for ambitious people who are either looking to partner up with somebody who already has an idea or for those who have an idea but need the additional support of a co-founder."
Marc von Brockdorff,
"Founder2be is a unique web-based enterprise dedicated to helping people who want to start new enterprises find compatible co-founders."
Doug Richard's School for Startups
"Finding the right team is one of the golden rules for creating a start-up. But how do you find them? [...] Oliver Bremer [...] created a tool to solve this problem once and for all - Founder2be."
"Within first three months Founder2be was able to get more than 1500 users, 2 start-ups launched and become partners with 20 entrepreneurial organizations and incubators all over the world."
Nacue - Stimulating University Enterprise
"Thanks to Founder2be, those looking to build start-ups now have a much wider group of people to connect with."
Get Busy Media
"It is great if only because it will let any person who has ideas find those with the technical wherewithal to make them come true."
"[...] This could be revolutionary. Let's hope humanity is motivated enough to make use of this resource."
"[...] History has been made. I am really excited to see how Founder2be expands to help many more partnerships come together."
"It's a simple and brilliant idea, people interesting on startups have created a profile and share information about themselves like location, skills, availability, experience, roles, etc. Based on your data you will be offered a list of matching profiles which is very handy as you don't need to search."
"The folks over at Founder2be [...] believe that finding the right co-founders for your fledgling company is actually the most difficult yet crucial in determining the ultimate success of your venture. That’s why they came up with their online community of entrepreneurial-minded people."
