Should all cofounders attend investor meetings?


October 8th, 2016

Seems to be a big question nowadays between my entrepreneur friends. From what you have seen out there, who should be present during the meeting to have the most amount of impact?

Maybe yes, Maybe not.

Whoever can make the greatest impact should attend. They would want to meet with all the co-founders eventually. Until then, focus on impact and impression.

I don't know that there can be a blanket answer for this. The make-up of founding teams is wide and varied.

As with any meeting, I suppose it comes down to the degree of value for either group that would rely on the presence of any party. 

Smart companies operate efficiently. It doesn't always have to be a dog-and-pony show. If the attending parties can speak well to points of discussion and equally capture items to effectively communicate to the rest of the team concisely but meaningfully, then that should suffice.
