Finding the right cofounder(s) is critical to the success of a venture. OnStartups has a great post one best practices in recruiting cofounders.
"balanced teams with one technical founder and one business founder raise 30% more money, have 2.9x more user growth and are 19% less likely to scale prematurely than technical or business-heavy founding teams."
" Advisors and friends are great, but they aren’t nearly as emotionally invested as you are."
"Fall in love with the person, not the idea."
"When should you start thinking about a potential cofounder? The quick answer is ‘always.’"
"Finding the right cofounder is game changing – make sure you approach it like you would a partner and make it an early priority."
