Cofounda app is a platform that connects people, skills and ideas for business and beyond. It is a location based, instant messaging service for entrepreneurs, investors and people wanting to start something.
The idea began when one of the founders of the app was searching for a Creative cofounder for a magazine they wanted to launch, the process was long and expensive and it was only by chance they ended up finding the perfect person for the job less than 900 metres from where they lived. Cofounda allows users to search and find people with complimentary skillsets instantly, allowing people to start projects faster.
Cofounda also allows entrepreneurs to connect and pitch directly through to Investors, our video pitch module gives you the unique opportunity to tell people a little bit about your idea, your new team and what you are looking for. This is then emailed weekly directly to our Angel Investor database.
CoFounda. Get Connected.
