I am in a difficult situation currently. I am an experienced C++/Qt plus Embedded C/C++ developer. Together with a good friend I planned to open some development service business here in Germany. We are an extremely good match regarding our personality and regarding our technical skills!
Unfortunately he decided to incur serious private liabilities that make him inflexible in matters of time and money while I took the opposite path. I can not consider him a good partner for starting a business anymore. What a pitty.
I tought about starting a business on my own. But I don't think I should do this without one or two people that complete my personal and professional profile in a way that allows serious and reliable development and business operations. I think I really have valuable and essential strengths but also some weaknesses that do not make me a real good "lone wolf" but a good team member.
I know there are a lot of freelancer websites out there. But I should find people based on their talents (if possible in Germany; however I worked in an international environment for years so this is not essential).
My questions: What is the best way to find such people? Are there any popular freelancer/start-up web services that include systematical team building? Any concrete suggestions how to proceed?
