About this event

What is the most difficult part of a startup?

Idea?! You will most likely pivot 10 times! Funding?! There is plenty of money out there looking for good startups. Product?! You will figure out how to build it…  

Great things in business are never done by one person. They are done by a team of people. These are Steve Jobs’ words, and part of his success comes from working together with his ideal co-founder Steve Wozniak.

Creating something people want includes creating a company people want to work for. Selling your story and your passion is not an easy job, especially to your co-founder, who will have to be the first one to really believe in you. 

Do you have an idea for a technology company, but don't have all of the skills necessary to bring the company into reality? Then join Startup Grind and Founder Institute for this joint event. We will have a fireside chat about what to look for in a co-founder. You’ll meet others who have successfully found the right co-founders, so you can learn from them. You’ll also be able to pitch your startup idea to prospective co-founders. Then, attendees speed-pitch their idea to other attendees, based on the type of co-founder they are looking for and industries they are interested in. Join us for a fun night where you can build the team to make your business happen!

Who Should Attend?

  • Anyone who is starting or planning to start a technology company
  • Anyone who is interested in co-founding or joining the team of an early stage technology company
  • Anyone interesting in learning how co-founder arrangements typically work
