Here at StartupCafe we know how difficult it is for startup founders to find love. We know the score. You work all day and all night getting your MVP ready; you have to spend time surveying and talking to potential users; you have to spend ages refining your pitch, and you have get land those big meetings with investors … when do you even find time to meet anyone? And then when you meet them, how will you explain that you’re a poor startup founder with great potential?
Well worry no more. The StartupCafe team is here to help!
Starting from today, we’re launching StartupDating!
StartupDating is a dating site for startup founders. As well as matching physical attributes, StartupDating allows you to find your perfect match by determining the usefulness and value they can bring to your career as an entrepreneur! In finding a perfect match, the site will take into account what skills they have, how much money they’ve raised before, how much local knowledge they have in a particular country, how many twitter followers they have and which well-known VCs they have a personal connection with. Gone are the days in which personality, hobbies and physical attributes are online dating’s limiting factors.
When asked about the StartupDating revolution, one of our first users explained, “Would I rather date someone for a personal connection, or a business connection? One will take time away from my startup, and the other will bring valuable resources to it. The answer is quite obvious really.”
Take Sam and Rachel. Sam is the founder of RentAnOstrich.com, a site offering exotic pets rentals for special occasions. He has bootstrapped his company in Ireland, has 3850 followers on twitter, and is looking to expand his successful model into the United States. Rachel is a single American with an event planning business in Montana, looking to diversify from retirement parties to farming and exotic animal conventions. She loves Guinness, leprechauns, and ostrich rides on the beach. Traditional sites may never have spotted the opportunity here, but thanks to StartupDating’s clever algorithms, Rachel can help Sam tap the American events market while Sam can help Rachel understand the farming and pet industry.
Remember back in the Roman days when people had to marry for political and financial reasons? Well perhaps it’s time we brought back the wisdom of our ancestors. StartupDating: putting the business back into marriage!
