My company is now looking for a step forward in deciding to hire a tech co founder in case I get hit by a bus tomorrow. Other than local universities what are some good places to find a geek with some business knowledge.
Hi. I have to agree with Mike. I had a technology business that developed an unbreakable encryption product for internet payments and software anti-piracy, and when I needed a qualified tech co-founder, I looked within my own network. After doing some due diligence, I actually ended up asking my lead developer. This worked on several levels: We already had a great relationship built on the time we worked together. We had similar beliefs but he wasn't a 'yes' man. He also complemented my strengths and filled in the gaps where I was lacking. I always hire people smarter than me so I can continually learn and grow. The company as a whole grows too. Hope that helps!
