You've tried the solopreneur gig and just can't seem to get ahead in gaining traction. You’ve been told you need a co-founder, but why? Turns out, attracting, bringing on a co-founder and coming to agreeable terms is complex. How do you pick the right one? Come hear from successful startup coaches and co-founders and learn:

  • What's the right makeup for a team? Do I need a co-founder? More than one?
  • Why should I consider someone with a military background? 
  • Where do you find them? (HINT: Co-founder meetups and Bunker Labs!)
  • How do you “date”? 
  • Coming to terms: Equity, vesting and organizing responsibilities 
  • Keeping the peace: disagreements, managing strong personalities and how do you handle or avoid a breakup? 

Austin Startup Week is supported in part by Capital FactoryTechstarsGalvanize, and Janik Vinnakota LLP.
 If you see someone from their teams, give them a hug and hi-five!
