In this episode of The Hive Up Podcast, we talked about how to find a good co-founder. Qiuyan and I discussed the challenges of finding the right partner and how to test compatibility. While we observed that solo founders can sometimes appear heroic, we agreed that having a strong co-founder is optimal for us. Having someone that ‘understands your heart’ is important when unexpected situations arise, decisions need to get made quickly and trust is key.
We spent a bit of time talking about the B2B space and why bigger companies sometimes feel compelled to use plug and play innovations of smaller companies and startups.
Finally, Qiuyan went into detail about an event Hive Up is having to inform new investors about how to build your first portfolio.
