Successful startups need a solid team of like-minded people. But how do you find and hire others to help build, sell and manage your product? Tanis Jorge and David Blumberg talk about the importance of co-founders on a very special day australiabusinessblog.com Live Event, March 1st at 11:30am PST / 2:30pm EST.
They know this topic well. Tanis Jorge co-founded Trulioo and now runs The Cofounder’s Hub, a service that helps founders identify their needs and find a co-founder who will work best in that situation. David Blumberg, of Blumberg Capital, was one of Trulioo’s first investors, putting money in every round, including Trulioo’s $394 million Series D.
I’m excited to lead this conversation about internal partnerships. The importance of the co-founder is often underestimated. A good co-founder should provide additional skills – maybe you’re good at coding but need help with business management. Or maybe a good co-founder is someone who can help manage the emotional baggage that comes with starting a business. And there’s no better accountability partner than someone who helped found the company.
David also brings a unique perspective to the conversation. As a prolific investor, he can speak to the VC’s stance on having multiple founding partners in a startup. VCs often view companies with complementary co-founders as less risky and more likely to succeed. I also want to ask him about his role as a VC in helping promising entrepreneurs find a co-founder.
i hope you can join this event on March 1. It’s going to be awesome, and I’m watching the audience to help ask some of the questions through Hopin’s Q&A feature.
