It’s time to pair-up again!

By: thejunctioncoil

Perfect Match (by Rob Evans)

A few months back, we set up the first pair-up event in Israel. It’s been an awesome experience, and coupled with a few great success stories, it’s a real high.

And yet… Much like when I wrote the original post, the most common conversation starters I hear is “I need a co-founder”, mostly of the technical variant. We now have the opportunity for you to find the perfect co-founder, AGAIN.

“How?” you ask? Simple. We invite you over to our humble crib at The Junction (August 1st most likely), and let you pitch you, your idea & venture status for 2 whole minutes. No need for complicated slides, it’s all in the presentation.

If you are just out of 8-200 or from another startup and feel ready to start your own, how cool can it be to be pitched by 30 people, all wanting you to join them? You just need to pick & choose. The focus for the night is consumer b2c and b2b2c companies. 

So, who should register?

If you aren’t in the search right now but have a friend that might be (both with an idea and looking for a great co-founder with one), be a good sport and send it their way. They will thank you!

Each pitch event will have ~ 30 ideas pitched to a crowd of 40 available entrepreneurs. We will review the list and send invitations for both pitchers and listeners a week before the event. Please! Wait for an official invitation, don’t just drop by (hint, hint).

    Can Israeli entrepreneurs living abroad (New York) tale part in the pairing process in some way? Some initiatives might benefit from this kind of pairing…

    As much of the pairing up process is very personal, I don’t see how can that be possible, unless you mean that the NY-based entrepreneur was to visit Israel?

    Can Entrepreneurs who aren’t currently looking for co-founders pitch, for others insight ?
    – What if Entrepreneurs needs to be paired up with funding?

    Chaim, only the two groups (ideas, looking to join) can participate. It’s not intended as a generic or fund raising pitch night.
