WSGR Startup Basics: Do you need a cofounder for your startup?



about this episode

In the early phases of your startup, do you need a cofounder? Who’s the right person and what kind of prior relationship should you have? Is it helpful for fundraising? And if you’re not a technical person, how do you convince a coding ninja to get on board?

In a new series from This Week in Startups, Jason Calacanis tackles common questions in Startup Basics, brought to you by WSGR. As a serial entrepreneur and angel investor, Jason has been on both sides of the table. Now he share his advice with you in short segments, focused on one question. Plus, key advice from investor-turned-coach Jerry Colonna, and VC Mark Suster.
