Finding the perfect partner is never an easy task, especially when dreams, business and dollars are at stake. However, thanks to the new matchmaking phenomenon, entrepreneurs can now connect with other co-founders, startups or organizations through companies that mirror the online dating formula. No matter your background – a woman with a million-dollar idea or an experienced entrepreneur in need of a new job or a college kid with a company in need of funding – you can find your ideal match online.
Matchmaking services vary depending on their focus, but most ask users to develop a profile that highlights their job location preference, skills, past experience (such as previous startup work or funding raising success), and other key attributes. The matchmaking sites then provide potential matches for the user to contact and meet. The users decide next steps. Will you meet each other in-person to discuss business? How many “dates” will you go on before you decide to walk down the aisle?
If you are in need of a co-founder, startup or idea matchmaking service, here are four companies that can meet your needs:
