Seeking Cofounder (aka ninja, rockstar, superman, etc)

Hello,

I’m working on a new web project and I’m looking for a technical
cofounder. I’ve had a few startups before (both successful and
otherwise) and outsourced the web development. However, this time I
really want to bring on a partner to own the product so I can focus on
the business development. The business brings customer acquisition to
service industries, like restaurants, and has local deal components,
including mobile integration. It is NOT a groupon clone. I’d be happy
to get into the details with the right people.

I’m in the NYC area and it would be great if you’re around here too, but
that’s not a requirement. Also, this can be started part-time as we
will quickly be able to test-market the business and iterate on what
works.

Looking for someone who loves web 2.0 stuff, understands
user-experience, and is obsessed with data. You will own the product so
some front-end skills would also be helpful.

I’m a hardcore business guy. If you’re a hardcore programmer guy (or
girl) with some front-end chops too, please be in touch.

Please email some examples of your work (and a resume only if you
already have it completed) to aprice @ readysetwow .com

Look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Aaron,

I’d be interested in hearing more about your idea.

I’m currently employed as the lead developer for ShopKeep.com, a SaaS
startup based in NYC. I telecommute from Fort Worth, Texas. The
business side of my current situation isn’t shaping up as I’d
envisioned and so I’ve started looking for my next adventure.
Something that can be started part time as you’ve described would be
ideal.

My past employers range from the Fortune 50, including IBM and
American Airlines / Sabre, to startups one. I’ve done five startups
total, two of them my own. The first I sold. The second was my first
major Rails effort which I ultimately closed and open-sourced the
code. I began my career in development, did the stereotypical ‘climb
the ladder’ thing spending a substantial portion of my career in
Project Management / Management, and then moved back into hands-on
development about 5 years ago after discovering Rails.

I am a student of Business. Software, for me, has always been a tool
for addressing business needs. My library contains more business
books than technical books. My “if you can only take 3” are “The
Discipline of Market Leaders”, “The Service Profit Chain”, and
“Crossing the Chasm.”

If the above interests you, let’s talk.

Best regards,
Bill

My sincerest apologies to the list for this faux paux. Just one more
example of the value of a non-interrupt-able schedule :wink:

Best regards,
Bill

Bill -

Can you email me at aprice @ ready set wow .com (no spacses, obviously)
so we can talk? I can’t find any contact info from you here.

Thanks,
Aaron
