Nothing but abusive communication and scammers. Full on troll farm, and the management seems to be ok with it. You WILL NOT receive any legit investment offer through this platform. Do not send any ideas, private or sensitive information to people on this platform, they are trolls looking to scoop up your good ideas. This company is essentially a scam.

Claims to be free, lets you build your profile, then blocks access for 14 days unless you upgrade. Terrible Business Model. Please GDIAF. Waste of time.

They pretend like the service is free, but once you start engaging with people, they block you from searching with a message that says: "Want unlimited search access, direct messaging capabilities and access to potential business partners now? Upgrade to premium or wait until the start of next month to regain free access". This was unpleasant, but I waited until the next month to realize this was a scam... they don't actually give your access back. They lock you down till you pay them. Very disappointing.

Maybe there are good people in the CoFoundersLab pool, but I signed up and the next day received a long detailed letter from a woman claiming to be in California. She appeared to be from the middle east, and there was some slight broken English in the letter. She told me a long story about a money making scheme in Iraq. My BROWSER settings were changed and my computer took on a life of it's own! VERY AGGRESSIVE VIRUS DEPLOYMENT ON MY COMPUTER!!
I DO in fact know how to clean my computer even with an aggressive attack like this because I have a LOT of helpdesk analyst experience, but this would have freaked out a lot of people for very good reason. And it came from simply opening the email. It took me an hour total find and delete unauthorized software and browser plugins they installed on my computer and fully rid myself of the compromise to my computer and private files, email, etc.
This will my first and only experience with CoFoundersLab. I was so hopeful in the beginning but something like this happening within 24 hours of a membership in a legitimate online community is unheard of. Never happened to me in 25+ years.
This is what you'd expect from a hack site, or a gambling website, or an illegal site selling knockoff pirated products from a third-rate wanna be online business. Very scary. I won't be back.

The search and user interface will drive you crazy, you can not find anyone there because of how poorly it is designed.

Not even bother to rate. I attended their accelerator program spending 2,000 dollars. It's was a total waste of money, or more importantly waste of time. It was poorly organized, we didn't receive any detail information about the program in advance. When I asked them by email, they just sent me a link of their website saying, join the program. I already joined the program, i need to know the detail of it. Response was very unprofessional and the content of the courses was just something you can have on the web. Just like other reviewers say, it's not worth it.

I'm a Pro member and have been very disappointed with the pool of technical co-founders along with the lackluster level of customer care. There is no hard-line vetting to filter out the "technical co-founders" who are actually just SOLICITING for your business.
EVERY single one I've talked to want to join my startup for a fee and equity, and they have a team of engineers, which after some digging, you realize it's a tech development firm! I already have an outsourced tech team for Phase One, that's why I'm on CoFoundersLab now: to find persons, unaffiliated to any tech service company, to co-found this startup for further development.
I brought this issue up with customer care, but the rep tells me to just mark the ones I talked to as "SPAM", they're aware of this pervasive issue, and they'll take action to remove or suspend the marked members.
Heck no, am I going to brand someone with whom I spoke for 30 minutes as "SPAM". That is tactless and dangerous to me. Sure, these "co-founder"s are mostly gimmick and falsehood, but I talked to them as people, vis-à-vis.
It would be too obvious (after we've exchanged emails and phone numbers) to them who is responsible for getting their account closed or suspended. Talk about subjecting me to potential stalker and trolling crazies. Not cool.
