Co-founder matchmaking event

Ready to turn your startup idea into reality, but still looking for the right partner-in-crime?

Are you an entrepreneurial soul that’s interested to join someone else’s idea as a co-founder?

Already running an early-stage tech startup, but still looking for a late co-founder to join you in your journey?

On March 28th, imec.istart organizes a free online co-founder matchmaking event for anyone that wants to connect with potential co-founders. During this event, you’ll have the opportunity to meet plenty of ambitious individuals with a broad range of expertise and entrepreneurial skills that are open to build a tech startup together. Whether you’re an entrepreneur or researcher with an existing startup (idea) and you’re looking for an ambitious partner with complementary skills to join you, or you’re curious to join someone else with their existing startup (idea) as a co-founder (or even a mix of both), this event is the perfect opportunity to meet your future co-founder(s).

To help you connect with the most relevant participants during this event, we’re using a tool called Conversation Starter.

After signing up for the event via this link, you’ll be asked to complete your profile on the Conversation Starter platform. Your profile includes your request(s) and your offer(s), which is where you can briefly explain what kind of people you would like to meet, and what you’re offering in terms of your expertise or startup (idea).

To recommend the most relevant participants, you’ll also be asked to choose the labels that best describe your expertise (e.g. commercial skills, IT/Software developme

How does it work?

To help you connect with the most relevant participants during this event, we’re using a tool called Conversation Starter.

After signing up for the event via this link, you’ll be asked to complete your profile on the Conversation Starter platform. Your profile includes your request(s) and your offer(s), which is where you can briefly explain what kind of people you would like to meet, and what you’re offering in terms of your expertise or startup (idea).

To recommend the most relevant participants, you’ll also be asked to choose the labels that best describe your expertise (e.g. commercial skills, IT/Software development, hardware engineering, financial skills, etc.), as well as why you’re participating in this event (e.g. I have an idea, I have an MVP, I’m looking to join an existing startup, I’m open to ideas, etc.).

One week before the event, we’ll give access to the list of all other participants so you can start browsing through their requests and offers and invite the most relevant participants to meet with you in a single click. When an invitation to meet is accepted, the Conversation Starter platform finds the ideal time slot to meet.

During the event, Conversation Starter provides built-in 12-minute video calls (with a 3-minute break between each call) through their intuitive platform, so there’s no need to download or install any additional software. The purpose of this event is to help you set up short interactions with the relevant individuals, which should be enough to know if a follow-up meeting makes sense.

During and after the event, you’ll have access to the overview and the contact details of all the people you’ve scheduled meetings with. You can also take notes and save them in your Conversation Starter profile.

Program

  • 5:00PM – 5:10PM Welcome: practical information about the event
  • 5:10PM – 5:30PM Presentation: imec.istart in a nutshell and do’s & don’ts of a potential co-founder relationship
  • 5:30PM – 8:00PM Connect via 12-min. 1-on-1 video calls on the Conversation Starter platform

Tips & tricks for a successful event

  • Make sure to complete your profile with relevant and up to date information, including a profile picture. Adding a profile picture makes you come across as more authentic and credible, thereby increasing your chances of having your meeting requests accepted.
  • There are limited timeslots available, so check out each profile thoroughly before sending a meeting request and/or accepting one.
  • Can’t join the whole event? Need a break? Mark yourself as unavailable via the agenda function. If you don’t have any time slots left but you still want to meet a few other participants, you can always share contact details and follow up afterwards.
