Back in June we introduced you to Founder2Be, a matchmaking service for entrepreneurs looking to get a startup off the ground. Now the site is taking things a step further with the launch of premium accounts.
Following a similar model to LinkedIn, premium ‘Pro Plan’ accounts introduce features such as an ad-free experience, a ‘see who has visited your profile’ feature and dedicated support with fast response times.
As we explained in our previous report, Founder2be users create profiles, sharing information like their location; skills; availability; previous projects; startup and fund-raising experience; ability to contribute seed funding, and co-founder preferences. The site then offers up potential suitable matches. Users can also post up product ideas, helping to find a match with the right interests and skills.
Premium accounts are available at three pricepoints for one, three, and six month subscriptions, at $14.95 per month, $24.95 per month and $34.95 per month respectively. However, Founder2Be has teamed up with The Next Web to give away $10,000 worth of free accounts to get the ball rolling.
If you’re looking for a co-founder for your startup idea and you’d like to give it a go, visit www.founder2be.com/free-pro-plan and follow the instructions before they’re all gone. You have until October 16th, 2011 at 23:59pm PST to enter, so be quick!
