Join StartupStay – couchsurfing for entrepreneurs

 

Entrepreneurs are a wonderful breed of people willing to help each other in their pursuit to make the world a better place.

When they were given the platform to connect when traveling, it was obvious they would like to share their business networks and houses with fellow entrepreneurs.

In 3 months from launch, StartupStay already gathered almost 4000 entrepreneurs through peer to peer invitations*.

StartupStay is like couchsurfing for entrepreneurs. This means free accommodation, expansion of business networks, better understanding of local communities and intros to them. Sounds great, right?

I experienced the platform myself when traveling to Cologne last week for European Pirate Summit. By just posting my travel plans, a few days later I already received an offer from a local, who proved to be a wonderful host and aspiring entrepreneur. Besides, being hosted together with one of the speakers at the conference was also a plus to the experience, enabling  great connection.

So, if you are an entrepreneur and you want to join the platform, let me know and I can send you an invitation.

Besides, there are some other involvement opportunities:

– Be a local ambassador for StartupStay. If you are well-connected in your local entrepreneurial community and you love the concept behind StartupStay, help connect your community with visiting entrepreneurs to enhance the internationalism and bring new perspectives to the table.

– Be the team’s CTO. Fred and Facundo, the two co-founders of the platform, worked as much as they could to build a minimum product and get the first users on board. But now is time to develop more and for this they are looking for a great technical person willing to join their business.

– Be a cool investor. In order to iterate fast, the team needs financial support. They have users metrics and success stories to show already, plus a great vision on how to build the community of entrepreneurs and what benefits to offer to them.

If you are interested in any of these 3 points, contact Fred at fred [at] startupstay.com

I wish you a pleasant StartupStay experience!
