Hi, I am the CEO of a startup. It is at conceptual stage as of now. I am looking for co-founders for the same. I need a Lawyer, a Techie and Digital Marketing Guy.
I am 12 years experienced IT person. I have run IT Firm as CEO. So I need 10-12 years experienced persons of their respective fields. Anyone running own business/self employed like Lawyer, IT Services firm or DM company are highly preferred.
If you master your field and dedicate yourself, Startup Success Guarantee is onto me.
You may benefit from keeping in mind that your first employees are not inherently co-founders, they're just first employees. A co-founder is not to just fill a skill gap. A co-founder MUST share an identical vision for the company as you. Vision is the ideal experience of your product and company for customers (external and internal). You are the founder, but it does not inherently make you a CEO, which comes with specific baggage built into the title.
What I'm most curious about is why you would be looking for someone already owning their own business and think they would abandon theirs to join yours. If you're simply looking for a service provider (nothing wrong with that), that's definitely not a co-founder relationship. It can reduce financial risks to have service providers whom you pay as you need them instead of retain with salary when you may not have full-time needs.
If you do decide you need a co-founder, someone to share your vision, then the best way to recruit them is to do the work that shows them you have made significant efforts to reduce their risk in joining you. Your background aside, validating your marketing strategy is something you can do before you take on responsibility for anyone else's basic needs, and will tell you if your idea can become a business.
If you are looking for someone to help with CTO duties, we can definitely help. Having an experienced team is a must when it comes to improving your business.
