The co-founding trend is going strong, with many of today’s up-and-coming startups led by two (or more) complementary individuals.
Founder or co founder, that is the question…. It seems that many businesses start with multiple people and then split or break up. Most of the good hollywood stories like Social Network bring the drama by the founders getting in fights or splitting. Is that what you want for your start-up?
Hey it is only half the profits, and twice the headache... If that isn’t fun enough, get more people… As I start my journey into the tech startup business I am weighing my options. It seems to me going it alone can have some really bad impacts but the glory is not diluted if you make it through everything. Two people to me seems like it would be worse than three of four in that you can really butt heads because as soom as you have a disagreement you have a whole split. With three people you get a little more balance but you give up another cut of profits.
So what is the best start-up model or is there a best? I think it comes down more to who you are starting up your business with maybe more than how many. Like all relationships who is on the other side can dramatically add to or take away from the success of the relationship. For now I will continue to research this to determine who I will bring in to my projects and businesses.
