How to find a co-founder for your project
How can I find a co-founder for a project?
1. If you have a side project and would like to seek a co-founder through SideProjectors, first visit "Post a project" page. On this page, you will see a form where you can specify the details of your project. We encourage you to fill out all the form fields, especially the "Briefly describe what kind of co-founder / collaborator you are looking for". This gives your potential co-founders the sufficient understanding of the project and prevents you from receiving emails with unnecessary questions. Also, your project will be more likely to be listed in the featured projects list.
2. When a user is interested in joining as a co-founder to your project, he / she will contact you via email with a message. It is completely up to you to start the conversation with users. We understand that it is a difficult task to find a right co-founder, so we strongly suggest you take your time. 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.
Are there any side projects I cannot submit to seek a co-founder?
SideProjectors does not accept side projects containing adult contents. Projects that contain or link to offending content will be removed from SideProjectors.
How can I make sure the people emailing me are valid users?
We advise you to take time in talking to the potential co-founders. 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
