We all know about the importance of finding the right cofounder. There are couple of items that I have noticed coming up more often when startup folks talk about cofounders:
1- Complementary skills
2- Similar goals and passion
People often emphasize on how its critical to look for people with complementary skills to our own, and have a clear understanding of the each person responsibilities to get the company going. Simply put: one builds, one sells.
At the same time founders (mostly suggested 2 people, however, that is another discussion) must have the same goal and passion, for instance if one founder is all about building a consumer product and the other one is interested in an enterprise product, that will be a recipe for disaster.
What else do you think or have heard as the key questions that cofounders must ask before starting their journey?
