Wanted to share info that seems super relevant for this crew - if you’re
even thinking about starting a company or turning a side project into an
entrepreneurial venture. *Founder Dating (FD) <http://bit.ly/1alB38h>* is
an invite-only, online network for entrepreneurs to connect with other
high-intent entrepreneurs to start companies and share best practices.
What makes FD different?
- *High Quality*: each member is carefully screened for quality and
readiness - no recruiters or smarmy sales pitches. Identities are
confidential, but the community includes former founders and early
employees from Stackmob, Gilt, Twitter, Loggly and Facebook, to name a few.
There are numerous serial entrepreneurs with exits under their belts.
- *Balanced*: the community is strictly 50% engineering and 50%
- *Global Reach:* FD’s online network allows you to connect with people
across 24 cities for access to the best entrepreneurial resources without
the barriers of a local meetup.
- *No Idea Necessary*: Just be ready to work on a serious side project.
Toronto's community is one of the largest in the network and members love
it. We've had three confirmed successful pairings to date in Toronto:

FreshCanteen <http://www.freshcanteen.com/> : FD blog
Ulonova <http://www.ulonova.com/> : FD blog
