BoxJelly Co-founder Speed Dating
Tuesday, January 15, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM (HST)
Want to join a startup? Are you looking for that special co-founder to 'complete you'?
We talk to a ton of founders, and many of them are at the idea stage and need a business or technical partner to launch their startup. Other teams are looking for their first follower (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fW8amMCVAJQ) – that first person that will come on board and be part of an awesome team and culture early on.
If you have a tech startup and need someone else's skills to round out your own, or have some skills and drive, but not the idea (yet), come find your match in an organized one-on-one speed dating session. Open to all interested, both business (marketing, biz dev and finance) and techies (devs, UX and design).
We'll match you up with potential co-founders based on what you're looking for, and you'll get 5 minutes with each of them to pitch yourself, hear their pitch, and see if there's a fit.
We'll be maxing out around 30-35 people, so you'll get to spend some quality time with 15 - 17 individuals, with time afterwards to follow up. Be sure to register early! If you can't make it - be sure to cancel for the folks on the waitlist!
Location: 307a Kamani St. Honolulu, HI 96813
“The first follower is an under-appreciated form of leadership. The first follower transforms a loan nut into a leader. If the leader is the flint, the first follower is the spark that really makes the fire.”
