Is that a startup idea or are you just happy to see me?


Is that a startup idea or are you just happy to see me?

Sometimes the most difficult part about forming a startup is finding the right cofounders to help you get that idea off of the ground. It’s not easy. And even though there are a lot of fish in the sea, finding that special somone—or someones—is always a challenge.

Now, there’s hope.

That’s right folks. It’s that time again. Time for startup speed dating with OTBC. So pack up all of your cheesy pickup lines, all of your cool startup ideas, and a list of the complementary skills you need to make your venture a success. And head over to the OTBC on September 26.

Just head on over to the OTBC site—which, as an aside, appears to be a fresh new Drupal implementation—and list your startup idea.

If you’d like to do an elevator pitch at the SpeedDating event, please post some information about your idea (even if you need to be vague) so we’ll know who wants to present, and can prepare a list to hand-out at th event.

What’s that? You don’t have startup idea but you have skills? That’s great too! There’s probably a startup that could use those skills. So head over to OTBC and tell folks about that.

How much for all of this matchmaking awesomeness? It’s free, my friend. Well, with a suggested $3 donation. But that’s still practically free.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? Well what are you waiting for, silly? For more information or to RSVP, see Speed Dating for Startups on Meetup. And then add your name to the startup list or the skills list.

    Thanks for the post Rick. I came up with lots of interesting come-back puns, but probably shouldn’t publish any of them! Suffice it to say that a good time will be had by all…
