10 Best Websites to Find Co-founders for Startups

Advisor Network

This network includes experienced professionals who want to mentor entrepreneurs or startups for equity and not cash.

The process of joining FounderDating is rigorous since every single applicant is screened to ensure that they meet the standards set for the site. Also, you have to create an account on LinkedIn if you don’t have one yet because the network uses LinkedIn like a sign-in tool. LinkedIn is also where most people will connect with you outside the site since it’s the most professional social media network around.

Update: In July 2016, Founderdating joined hands with CoFounderslab to form one of the biggest networks of entrepreneurs around.


StartHawk is a new startup looking to create a community where entrepreneurs and co-founders can meet and discuss their ideas. Primarily, StartHawk works by matchmaking founders and co-founders from any place around the globe. The goal of this company is to help any entrepreneur to launch their idea even when they do not have the skillset required to build it.

Membership is currently free to join, and you can easily start searching for a co-founder or join hands to build something with someone you meet on the platform.

startup weekend

Startup weekends are 54-hour long events that happen over the course of the weekend beginning Friday and ending on Sunday. Entrepreneurs, designers, marketers, product managers, developers and startup enthusiasts meet here to build products and launch them in just one weekend[5]. It is the absolute meeting place for everyone who wants to interact with like-minded people who are excited about the idea of building their own businesses and products. Stats indicate that 36% of the startups launched here over these weekends have gone on to become strong businesses which are currently thriving. During the event you also get to meet the movers and shakers of your community and who knows, maybe you will strike gold, an investor and a co-founder to form the unbeatable startup team.

Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practising LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts.
