Ask HN: Seeking a Cofounder
I'm looking for a co-founder -- preferably someone with a technical background who can build and understand complex web systems, to build a SaaS startup (with equal ownership). I'm interested in the reviews space, restaurant industry, data science, education -- anything that has a clear benefit to society. I have thoughts of my own but am open to other ideas.
2 degrees from a top-10 school. Startups (full-stack software engineer, operations), NASA, VC, interdisciplinary AI/medical research; equally receptive to any programming language/stack as long as it's tried and proven. I can commit full-time or part-time to the business. I'm extremely driven but have an overall positive / friendly temperament. Would prefer a co-founder with a similar demeanor who believes that good karma matters.
Looking for someone who is similarly driven and persistent -- someone who won't get flustered/mad or flake when the inevitable obstacles come rolling in. I don't realistically expect an exceptional relationship to blossom overnight, but at the same time don't want to spend too much time philosophizing before getting something out into the world. A US-based co-founder would make things a little easier, but I'm happy to collaborate with those outside of the US and have done so in the past.
Why / Next steps:
I'm posting here since most people in my direct network are not very entrepreneurial, and I know there are others like me who would benefit immensely from collaboration outside of their direct networks. Email [email protected] if you're interested in chatting and I'll be happy to give some more details :)
