🤝 Iterative Co-Founder Matching

Meet a potential co-founder, every week.

Meet the most ambitious group of builders in Southeast Asia

Finding the right cofounder is one of the most critical decisions an entrepreneur can make, but it's also one of the toughest. It's like finding a needle in a haystack - you need someone who shares your vision, complements your skills, and is willing to ride the rollercoaster with you. To find the right co-founder, you need to meet as many people as possible. Unfortunately even the best founders don’t have access to a network of people ready to commit to a startup. We want to help make this process a little bit easier. Every week, we’ll match you with an ambitious, committed entrepreneur who’s looking for a co-founder like you.

We hope that through this platform, we can help increase the surface area of potential co-founders you have access to - so you can find your perfect co-founder.

How It Works?

After you sign-up and fill out a questionnaire about yourself and the type of co-founder you're looking for, the following will happen each week.

1. Availability (Sundays)

Every Sunday, you will receive an e-mail asking if you are free that Thursday at 6 PM SGT to meet a potential co-founder. If you don't reply, we'll assume you're not interested this week and try again the following week.

2. Match (Tuesdays)

If you opt-into the week, we will manually match you with someone we think would be a good fit for you as a co-founder based on both of your answers to the questionnaire. You will be introduced over e-mail and receive a calendar invite for your upcoming meeting.

3. Meet (Thursday)

Meetings by default are on Thursday at 6 PM SGT via Zoom. Just follow the link in the calendar invite to meet your co-founder match.

Frequently Asked Questions

You have questions, we have answers.

What if I can't do Thursday at 6 PM? Can I suggest another time?

Once you're introduced to your match via e-mail, you're welcome to find a different time with them.

How much does this cost?

Absolutely nothing.

If I find my co-founder through this, do I have to join Iterative?

We would love to see you to apply to Iterative but you are absolutely under no obligation to do so. We just want to see more people start startups.

What if I don't want to meet the person you matched me with?

We ask that you keep an open mind especially when looking for co-founders. If you absolutely don't want to meet them, you can privately e-mail us to let us know.

About Iterative

Iterative is a YC-style accelerator focused exclusively on Southeast Asia. Iterative invests up to US500K in a batch of startups twice a year. The investment includes 3-months of targeted growth and fundraising support, which culminates in a Demo Day to a network of 400+ investors.

At Iterative, we spend a lot of our energy trying to make entrepreneurship more accessible in Southeast Asia. The pain staking process of finding the right co-founder can sometimes be one of the major reasons why people don’t start up full time. Through this product, we hope to see the origin of more start ups in the region.
