Where can I find a programmer in the Northeast United States to become a co-founder for a Web 2.0 startup?
To provide brief background: I do not have a coding background but have a strong business acumen given my experience in investment banking. Learning to code myself is not a realistic option given time constraints (my current job isn't accommodating to side ventures). I've detailed quite a few Web 2.0 ideas and have chosen the 1-3 that have strong promise after lengthy discussions with potential users, but I do not have the ability to take them to the next level without a committed programmer. As a note, I've applied to the YCombinator program for these ideas - however, I'm pessemistic in being accepted as I am a single-member team with no programming experience (2 qualities they are hesitant to get involved in).
I've been stuck in this situation before and am worried my idea will be thought of by someone else if I don't act soon (as it has happened before). I'm looking for a programmer that will work for sweat equity in the project and is committed for the long term (or at least some type of mechanism that ties compensation with the success of the site, rather than a one-time paycheck). One that can balance out the skill set necessary for success.
I'm willing to do whatever it takes to take the next step, I just need a qualified programmer who will take that step with me.
