Event description
Founding the right co-founder is the key for startup success. Join us for this event to learn how to create a strong co-founding team.

About this Event

Jobs and Wozniak. Brin and Page. Gates and Allen. Hewlett and Packard. Behind some of the largest companies in the world are a pair of founders.

It’s not a surprise that finding a great co-founder is the most important thing a startup can do. But it can also be the hardest.

Where to find them? Who should I be looking for? And how do I make the relationship work?

Entrepreneur First is the world's first talent investor. We’ve helped thousands of individuals to find their co-founder. We run a six-month programme to help the world's leading researchers, product builders, and domain experts meet, and build tech startups, from scratch. At Entrepreneur First, we fund individuals even before they have an idea or a team.

We’re bringing together some of our alumni to share with you their experience on finding the right co-founder, we will cover:

- What you need in a co-founder

- Where to find them

- What makes a great co-founding team

We’ll also hear from our own Entrepreneur in Residence on how he found a co-founder without Entrepreneur First and his view of this crucial step on the longer run.
