The Austin Co-founders Meetup is all about helping business people find a technical co-founder and vice versa.
Austin Tech Geeks is helping to create the Austin version of this meetup which is scheduled to have its first meetup on December 6, 2010.
Austin’s startup scene has grown with the help of many great local organizations such as RISE Austin, Tech Ranch, Austin Ventures, Capital Factory and many others. Proof of this growth is the number of organizations, events and meetups related to startups, and now Austin Tech Geeks is contributing by helping organize the Austin Co-Founder Meetup which is having its first meetup on December 6th 2010.
If you want to attend just go to the Meetup website to sign up.
The goal of this meetup is to connect people looking to work in a startup or wanting to become the co-founder of one with those people with an idea or an early-stage startup.
The format is simple, there are 10 speaking slots available (3 minutes each) for startups looking for co-founders. For more details on the logistics and the format of this meetup, please check out Alain’s blog post about this meetup, if you want to pitch/present at the meetup you should definitely read Alain’s post.
It is also a good idea to read this before the meetup, it provides great advice on how to pick up the right co-founder and it also explains why finding a co-founder is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever made for your startup.
