I am in the 3F's phase of an innovative Legal Tech startup, with a MVP Demo already available to selected users.
At the moment I am experiencing major difficulties in finding a NON-tech co-founder (with Marketing and Fundraising Skills/Experience), therefore I am looking into the possibility of moving the startup (and myself) to an environment with more opportunities.
My question is: right now, where is the most dynamic environment offering the widest range of real possibilities? (located, for example, in the Far East, in US or Canada)
I'm aware it's a million-dollar question, but if anyone could give me some advice would be greatly appreciated.
Silicon Valley, NYC, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Austin are the 5 best startup cities in my opinion. They all have a large number of incubators, accelerators, labs, etc. - lots of investors and a young talent pool.
Japan, Silicon Valley, Germany or France...
The answer to your question is "it depends." Because we have no idea what your company does, moving could have a dramatic effect on what customers are available, not only what talent pool is available. Marketing people are not fundraising people. Fundraising people are fundraising people. Within marketing there are 8 sub-divisions, but none of them are fundraising. And a marketing person will typically have mastery of only 1 or 2 of those sub-divisions.
I recommend taking a look at some of the reports available from InBIA who studies entrepreneurship worldwide. That should give you some guidance on where certain types of resources and companies do the best.
