About this event

If you are looking for a co-founder, attend this Fireside Chat with James LaLonde and network with others who are looking for capable people to partner with.

Choosing your co-founder(s) is the most significant decision that you have to make in the early life of a startup. Ultimate success and failure depends more often than not rests on this decision. More startups fail because of co-founder in-fighting than any other reason. That said, you can’t do it alone as data shows most successful startups have multiple co-founders. Balancing your need to move fast with the need to choose carefully is of paramount importance. In a highly interactive and informal setting James LaLonde will take you through his “founder checklist” covering topics from co-founder responsibilities, domain knowledge, equity splits, compensation, goal setting and the other key issues that need to be discussed and evaluated up front. James has wide experience in China and will also touch on the China-specific topics, such as what kind of entity to form and do you really need a Chinese co-founder, etc.?
