Hello product hunters! Alejandro Cremades here. I am one of the cofounders of the holding company, Onevest. CoFoundersLab is a community of 300,000+ entrepreneurs that help each other thrive. In July, I told you about our acquisition of FounderDating, which made us one of the web’s largest networks of entrepreneurs, and now I’m back with another exciting update: a completely revamped CoFoundersLab Discuss. We made (and now improved) Discuss because we personally know how long, difficult, and lonely the founder’s journey is. We also know that entrepreneurs genuinely want to help one another, which is why we created Discuss to be a place where all entrepreneurs can ask questions about everything from common issues to highly technical and industry-specific queries. The response from entrepreneurs on Discuss has been incredible — 5,000+ discussions, 48,000 answers (including responses from leading executives and VCs), and a 90% response rate. We’re excited to help even more entrepreneurs in 2017. Discuss is here to help every founder on their journey!

It's nice to see a company attacking the problem of quality information for founders. There has been countless attempts over the years with varying degrees of success. Q&A sites need to have a lot of activity to be useful and it already looks like an active community! I'm looking forward to watching this community for founders evolve.
@hnshah thank you so much for the kind words! The WHY behind CoFoundersLab is really to bring education and transparency to the way founders build and grow their businesses. We find CoFoundersLab Discuss to be a good step in that direction :)
What inspired you to launch CoFoundersLab Discuss?
@cassandra_beaulieu on other sites folks can write a question and finding a helpful answer is like finding a bear in the ocean. Also we saw collaboration lacking. That got us thinking about CoFoundersLab Discuss :)
Is this a new product from CoFounders Lab? I remember using them years ago, I didn't know it was still ticking along :) What will entice users to use this vs places like Quora?
@bentossell Yes, this is their new product. I found it interesting since the community is targeted and narrowed by categories in compare to Quora.
hi @bentossell ! CoFoundersLab Discuss is a service that we have been working on for the past 6 months which we are excited to launch publicly today. Entrepreneurs on Discuss can help founders with problems that they have also experienced, and can directly collaborate with that user on CoFoundersLab. The collaboration part is the biggest differentiator with other sites such as Quora as CoFoundersLab is a network where founders can find cofounders, advisors, and early team members.

They are not honest about their free tier. If you start engaging, they lock your ability to search for others and force you to pay before they unlock it again. The website says "Upgrade to premium or wait until start of next month to regain access". But when next month comes... still no access. I reached out to support and they said I should sign up for the premium account, and provide them my billing info and they'll give "14 days free". Yea... no thanks!
