It is difficult to find the best business partners worldwide. It is especially not easy to find a qualified co-founder. In this article, we give you an overview of the best platforms to find a business partner anywhere in the world.
The best platforms for finding co-founders
These are the best business networks around co-founder search from all over the world. These websites will help you start a business anywhere in the world. Large networks such as Xing and LinkedIn are particularly suitable for these international projects.
The best business platforms in detail
Business ideas are particularly easy to post on this platform. TwoGuys is the only platform that takes the user by the hand and tries to find a business partner for ideas. There are already several German entrepreneurs on the platform.
The TwoGuys platform tries to help entrepreneurs find a business partner. At first glance, the platform is reminiscent of Facebook for Business. The website is very simply structured and has many functions to help in the search for business partners.
Pros and cons of TwoGuys
- Designed to search for business partners
- Entrepreneurs can be contacted directly
- TwoGuys is free
- Very many features
With 15 million users, Xing is one of the market leaders in the industry. Companies in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland can hardly avoid using Xing. Unfortunately, Xing is also not designed for entrepreneurs and the search for business partners.
Pros and cons of Xing
- Xing is free
- Xing is very popular in DACH
- Unfortunately no function to search directly for business partners
Linkedin has also gained a foothold in Europe in recent years. Linkedin is certainly the best-known platform in our ranking.
But Linkedin is not primarily about finding a business partner. Linkedin is more than an all-rounder business social media platform. Linkedin combines social media, news and business in one platform.
From our point of view, Linkedin is more adapted to the demands of employees and less suitable for entrepreneurs. This is the reason why Linkedin does not achieve a higher ranking here.
Pros and cons of LinkedIn
- Linked In is very popular in the USA
- Without the premium version very limited functionality
- Offers potential for international networking
- Unfortunately no possibility to find business partners directly
Where can I find co-founders worldwide?
Business partners can be found via the Founderio, STARTUP SUCHT and Founders Nation platforms.
Most co-founders can be found on the Internet these days. After successfully establishing contact via one of the above business platforms, contacts can be made quickly and easily. Offline, business partners can often be found at events, lectures or universities.
When do you need a co-founder?
Nobody needs a co-founder as a matter of principle. But if your project exceeds your area of competence, you should think about it. Usually, a business partner is either an investor (who supports you with experience) or a co-founder (who supports you with time, money and labor).
What should you look for in a worldwide Business Partner?
Of course, video chatting or face-to-face meetings are recommended to thoroughly evaluate potential partners. A good business partner must be someone who shares your vision, adds value to your business and fits your character.
If you pay attention to these things during your search, you have a good chance of finding a suitable business partner for your next project.
