Questions To Ask Potential Co-Founders

Update: 2020-10-07


Putting thought behind how you approach a co-founder search can support you in finding a strong fit for you and your business. By taking the time to get to know potential founders first, you're more likely to find a partner that will be someone who will help you build your startup from the ground up through good and bad times.

But how do you know when you’ve found a good co-founder match?

In this podcast episode, Tania shares a strategy that can help you during your co-founder dating phase to identify a good match; it's a strategy that involves asking purposeful questions.
