How to go about finding a passionate co-founder with pitching/marketing experience?

Unlike most startups that struggle to find and a technical cofounder, we don't have that problem. We have an excellent technical and operational team. Our challenge at the moment is finding a cofounder with pitching/fundraising and marketing experience. I don't mind whether they have a successful or failed startup career so long as they have relevant experience. We are willing and able to teach them about our product and form there determine their passion and desire to come on board. Any suggestions for locating the appropriate candidate? If you ever watch the show "Silicon Valley" on HBO...we're looking for an "Original Jared"

we're in the real estate technology industry. we developed a "zillow" with a submit offer function that takes vetted home offers directly to seller.

There is a lot to it but this is the gist of it.

Neil,

Given that I'm a non-technical guy, I'll tell you where I've made connections with technical founders to be a potential business-side cofounder:

Business Schools - Depending on cultural fit, the B Schools in the area are a great resource pool. If you want the "original Jared," this is a great place to get individuals with and without startup experience with energy, fresh ideas, and relevant business knowledge.

Angel.co - great because you post jobs (such as cofounder) with details. Potential candidates self select and you are notified.

Weave - it's a cool Tinder (I've never used it) meet's LinkedIn app. I've been on about five or so coffees with likeminded professionals, and I've made great connections with technical and non-tech all stars.

LinkedIn- search for people with relevant experience and cold email them.

Network - If you're funded or have strong VC/Angel connections, they should be able to point you in the right direction and link you up with strong co-founder types.

Hi Johnson- We're a real estate portal for DIY buyers (think Etrade for Real Estate). We allow vetted buyers to submit offers on real estate and we let them keep most of the real estate commission or offer to rearrange the commission splits to make their offer more attractive to a seller. Offers are routed through our platform directly to the seller/agent (no other MLS portal does this). We verify buyers' ability to perform in a number of ways depending how how are financing the purchase. Once offer is accepted, we facilitate the close. We use MLS tech, FinTech, verification APIs, and vendor APIs to make this all happen. Send me an IM if you want to learn more. Thank you. - Neil
