  • How to Find the Perfect Co-Founder
    easy answer Before I offer up suggestions ask yourself if you really need a co founder If you are seeking a technical co founder because you don t have those skills you could consider teaching yourself how to code It is not as insurmountable as most fear Plus it empowers you to engage with your technical team as you hire and build That being said if you do need a co founder for another skill set you don t have the time to learn to code or you are just looking for someone to help make decisions here are a few things to consider Network If you are in a major city especially one with a growing tech community there are regular events centered around finding co founders Go to meetups startup cocktail hours meet people who are a part of accelerators and get involved Also collaborating with people you meet on projects can lead to opportunities that didn t present themselves before Compatibility is key When looking for a co founder the most important attribute is compatibility Some companies last longer than marriages so you do not want to be joined at the hip with someone you can t get along with or won t pull her own weight A great way to make sure it will be a good fit is try each other out Before signing away equity see how well you both work together on projects and day to day tasks Be straight up about equity You need to think about how much of the company you want to give to your co founder and make sure you have those conversations early on with her There is no single infallible formula when determining how much equity to give No matter what that number you choose it
