Why partner with a co-founder?

Here's just a few good reasons:

  • Mitigate risk for investors

    Having a company and investment rely on a single founder flags numerous potential issues for investors. Since there is no co-founder to fall back on if something happens to the individual, it hightens the risk of their investment.

  • Strategic soundboarding

    Making big decisions when starting and running a company can have a huge impact on the growth of a business. This impact can either help or hinder the business hence why having someone to bounce ideas off of can help give you confidence in your decisions or surface flaws you may not have thought of.

  • Division of responsibility

    The day to day responsibility of running a business is often taken lightly until it comes to actually doing it. Having a cofounder focus on or help you with a particular part of the business will help alleviate that stress, especially when the company is still small and resources are stretched.

  • Complementary skillsets

    Arguably one of the most important factors when looking for a co-founder is what skills they will bring to the table. Having someone come onboard and provide the missing piece of the puzzle for launching or running your business effectively will feel like wind in your sails.

  • Faster time to launch

    Starting a business generally involves a lot of blood, sweat and tears from its' founders - particularly so if the business is bootstrapped. Having double the dedicated labour in the form of a co-founder will help you get to MVP quicker.

  • Split early out of pocket expenses

    Starting a business can be expensive. The opportunity to work with a co-founder will allow you to split the initial costs of getting a working product or prototype going, which will in turn allow you to raise funds at a higher valuation.

I knew I wanted to start something of my own but wasn't sure what. Met a tonne of great people on the platform with great ideas and have decided to embark on a new venture with one of them! Would highly recommend to anyone in the same position!
Pablo - Marketer
What I lacked the most in business was sales and business development skills. Through StartHawk I managed to find a co-founder with a wealth of experience in SAAS sales which meant I could focus on what I do best - product development
Eric - Developer
Was delighted to find my co-founder on StartHawk - its made the whole process of getting external investment a lot easier along with getting my product to MVP sooner than expected
