My aim is not just to find any co-founder, but to find the right co-founder.
I believe the success of my co-founder search depends on how many potential candidates see the opportunity. The more people who see the opportunity, the greater chance I have of finding the right fit for my specific needs.
Can you help me out? Can you share the opportunity page on social media and send it to specific people you know who might be interested? Below you can find pre-written message to use—or feel free to write your own!
As a thank you, whoever refers someone who I choose to be my co-founder will earn a $500 finder’s fee.
To make it easy to send messages to your contacts, I composed some fill-in-the-blank templates you can use below. Feel free to use these or write your own. Whatever you do, thanks!
If you know anyone in the media who would like to write an article about my co-founder search, please have them contact me. I’ve been documenting my process in Notion to give others a road map to follow if they also want to find a co-founder and would be happy to share my journey and what I’ve learned.
Looking for an opportunity to make an impact with your marketing / biz dev skills?— Trevor Lohrbeer (@FastFedora) February 14, 2022
I'm looking for a half-time co-founder for Day Optimizer, a time management SaaS startup, is looking for a half-time co-founder.

If you’re the person who makes the co-founder I finally choose aware of the opportunity, I will pay you $500.
The way I’ll determine this is by:
If more than one person is identified (because, for example, they saw multiple posts before deciding to schedule a call), then I’ll split the $500 among those identified.
I want to be fair to anyone who helps me. If no “finder” can be determined, I’d like to do a random drawing to give the $500 to anyone I can identify who helped increase the visibility of my search by liking, commenting or sharing it.
There’s some legal stuff around sweepstakes that I didn’t have time to look into before this launch, so I can’t promise anything right now.
But I’ve committed the money. So as long as I can figure out a way to do it, everyone will have a chance to win the money as a thank you gift. In which case, assuming it’s legal, each share, comment or like will be taken into account.
Share it on social media and send the offer via email or private message to people you know who you think might find it interesting.
Please don’t go overboard here and cross the line into spam. Violating the terms of service of a platform you are sharing it on, or sending the offer via email or a private message to someone you don’t know (aka cold email) will void the finder’s fee.
