But I found a workaround. I’ll be trying an alternative version of it in April through SeedNetworking, which sets up speed dates between entrepreneurs who need developers and devs who are looking for projects. Seven minutes max per “date,” 30 developers, 30 entrepreneurs.
I am so looking forward to this. I have no illusions that I’ll find the partner and CTO of my dreams, although stranger things have happened. If nothing else, it’ll be a chance to talk to devs who are completely unfamiliar with my project and see what about it piques their interest and where I lose them (interest and comprehension). Plus you get so deep into your own fantasy universe when you’re trying to create a startup that you need to explain it to the uninitiated every now and then to see if they think you’re in total lala land. If they do, then you reassess. It’ll be a challenge and a social experiment. I love both.
