The Difference between a Founder and a Co-founder

Founders are the first people to take a serious risk and invest in their ideas. They believe in themselves, their product, and its potential to make an impact.

Co-founders are equally important but their involvement is not at the same level as that of a founder.

How do I know if I need a co-founder?

Remember, your co-founder is responsible for helping execute on your vision and for bringing their specific expertise to the table. They aren’t just investors.

What if I don’t have a co-founder?

Can co-founders be equals?

Should Founders and Co-founders be rewarded the same?

Don’t just bring on co-founders because you think you need them.
