How to join a project as a co-founder
How do I join a side project as a co-founder?
1. First, you must be a registered user. So create an account via registration page.
2. Browse through projects posted. If you find a project you would like to join as a co-founder, you can click on "JOIN THIS PROJECT" button.
3. On this page, you'll need to provide some information on who you are and your intention to join as a co-founder. Please make sure you fill out all the form fields. Make sure you answer any questions that the owner has asked in "Owner is looking for a co-founder who is.." section in the project page.
4. If the owner is interested, he/she will respond to your request via email. We understand that it is a difficult task to find a right co-founder, so we strongly suggest you take your time in talking to the owner of the project. In addition to the exchange of emails, we also advise you to speak to them via other communication channels such as Skype, Google Hangout. You could also view their public profiles via GitHub, Twitter or Facebook. Better yet, we encourage meeting them in person (if possible) to coordiniate the co-foundership.
How can I make sure the owner is a valid user?
We advise you to take time in talking to the project owners. Do not proceed with the conversation, if you don't want to. Ask for public profile pages on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook to make sure you are talking to a valid user. It would also help if the two can discuss over other communication channels such as Skype or Google Hangouts or better yet, meet in person (if possible).
If you have encountered any users who may not be a valid user, then please email
