Announcing Marketplace Co-founder Match

Announcing Marketplace Co-founder Match

Announcements & Updates
June 26, 2022

As the Everything Marketplaces community continues to grow, we're finding more ways that we can better support and add value to our community members. Some of our members are aspiring founders at the earliest stages of starting a marketplace and looking for the right technical partner to help take their idea or initial MVP to launch. Others might be at larger tech companies and looking to make the jump back into starting a marketplace. With a community of such ambitious members and growing group of talent, we've started to see new connections being made, members start to work together, and even become Co-founders. After seeing this happen more frequently, we realized that there was a need for us to make it easier for our members to meet other potential Co-founders in the community, provide high signals for potential Co-founder fit, and connect directly. We also understand the importance of finding the right Co-founder with marketplace startups, since they come with unique challenges as they scale. With that in mind, we created our marketplace Co-founder match, which is specifically designed to bring together high quality members in our community who are looking for a Co-founder or to build a founding team.

We're excited to share that our marketplace Co-founder match is now live and accessible to all community members. We already have members that are former founders of successful Y Combinator backed startups, domain experts looking for technical Co-founders, and more that are using our Co-founder match.
