Today is a very special day. We are thrilled to share that we have completed the acquisition of FounderDating.
As you may know, FounderDating is a large curated community for finding advisors and cofounders. Their Q&A platform (similar to Quora) -FD:Discuss- has a 90% response rate in addition to a very large userbase of entrepreneurs. In essence, their offering was very similar to the CoFoundersLab platform.
With CoFoundersLab and FounderDating now combining efforts, our reach runs deep, allowing entrepreneurs to access the resources they need to thrive from team matching algorithms, to community discussion boards and a variety of certificate courses around how to create and scale businesses. FounderDating’s community will be combined under the CoFoundersLab brand to create the ultimate platform where company creation and growth is fortified.
FounderDating, was originally launched in 2012 by Jessica Alter. The platform has helped in the creation of many success stories such as Refresh.io (acquired by Linkedin) or Floquast (just raised $6.5M).
CoFoundersLab is just one piece of the Onevest ecosystem, where the goal is to support companies from founding (via CoFoundersLab) to funding (via 1000 Angels). This now gives Onevest a leadership position at company formation and a solid foundation to become the one stop shop for entrepreneurs, investors, and advisors.
The team could not be more excited for the future of our ecosystem and we are very much looking forward to continue bringing (and of course always increasing) the value that the platform provides to the entrepreneurial community.
There will be no changes for the CoFoundersLab community. In the coming months we will be transitioning all the community of FounderDating under the CoFoundersLab brand so now you will have access to the largest pool of cofounders online. Literally!
The experience and potential to find your partner just got that much better :)
