Is there a way (or start-up) that exists to connect people who want to get involved in a start-up? I'm not quite ready to leave my job at Google but I desire a new creative drive and I have a lot to give!

Would you be a technical or non-technical co-founder? Or are you looking to join an already-started startup? There are a whole bunch of sites matching co-founders, although I don't know what their success rate is like. E.g. Founder2be, cofounderslab, founders-nation. I've also heard of people using reddit, hacker news job board, etc. There's also the Antler VC program. I've heard good things. And of course, there's always alumni networks, fellow Googlers (be careful though, especially if the startup is at all related to what you guys do at Google), and just meeting people, especially if you're based in a place like San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Austin, etc. Source: not working at a startup, but a startup/VC attorney based in Silicon Valley with lots of friends who are working at or have worked at startups

This is great info! I would be non-technical as my background is in (non-technical) program management and HR, and I'm based in Austin. I don't have a preference for whether the start-up has been launched, but definitely do not feel comfortable looking for this opportunity within Google.

I'm definitely more productive remote. The office just provides too many opportunities for socializing. Plus I wouldn't feel ethical billing my client for my midday nap.
