Questions

I'm currently looking for a few new co-founders since my original co-founder left because of personal issues. What traits should I look for, aside from what they can bring to the table? What questions should I ask when meeting with them? What warning signs should I look out for? I'm looking into cofounders.com to set up meetings as well as attending group events from meetup.com such as 1 Million Cups and Startup Grind.

I have backed 43 startups and have had the chance to see upclose what works well and what doesnt. In short-when founders have complementary skills and similar values, the venture has a better chance of success. The worst chance of success is when inexperienced classmates with the same or similar degrees from prestigious schools try to do a startup. If you would like to discuss this further, please feel free to get in touch.
