Finding co-founders is like getting married. I’ve read, and believe, that you will spend more time together with your co-founders than you will with your significant other. I haven’t seen or heard much from my two co-founders lately. Have they stood me up, did I have my eyes on the wrong person?
But they said they were into risky ventures
“Are my co-founders the right ones”? During the early stages of a startup I can see how this point is very stressful. As far as I can tell, three possibilities exist:
- They are the wrong co-founders and will never be as dedicated to the company as the idea founder. Company fail.
- They are the right co-founders, but have not been properly integrated into the idea or motivated by the idea founder. I needs to work harder.
- They are the right co-founders, but have simply not entered as deep into the startup as the idea founder has, yet. Idea founder needs to calm down.
Note: The insanity trait is rare for a reason. I call it the saber-tooth tiger gene.
