A platform for talented people

Are you looking for an opportunity to really make a difference? Could you spare some time to help support a new venture while working on something you’re really passionate about?

Being part of a startup opens many opportunities and it challenges you every day (we should know!). Exchanging your ‘sweat’ for a share in the potential business can be extremely rewarding for the mind, body, soul and potentially for your pocket. Create your free profile and open yourself to opportunity.


A platform for great ideas

You have that one idea that you just can’t let go of, but try as you might, you’re struggling to make any real traction. You need people with skills or expertise you don’t have.  Your idea deserves it! Offering a small share in your potential business for the right team of people is common practice for startup businesses, but finding those people has always been a challenge, even for the most well connected.

If the thought of having to spend months networking with random strangers gives you the heebie jeebies, sign up now and skip all that.
