Where the world's most talented people meet and start companies.
We’re an invite-only matching program for finding your ideal cofounders.
From Ramen Profitability to PayPal Mafia.
Join Waitlist For next Cohort

Meet your future cofounders.

Ramen Mafia is a cohort-based matching program for finding cofounders. Each cohort is thematic and curated. You do not need to have a startup idea to join the batch. We aim for a fair balance of technical vs. non technical, and those with ideas vs. those looking to join / come up with an idea.

Our program will last for 4 weeks and be a lightweight way for people to interact with each other (program events will take <3 hours/week with the majority of time focused on participants connecting with each other).

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

"The Ramen Mafia team did a fantastic job of facilitating co-founder dating. I was impressed at how productive this approach was. In just 3 weeks I've been able to pressure-test my idea, brainstorm MVP features, and am exploring a potential co-founder relationship."
