Finding your co-founder

More than the ideas, it is the execution that matters and in order to execute, you need to have the right people. Every business needs a team & invariably, the first team member that you get is a co-founder. The co-founder helps balance the deficiencies that a founder might have. Additionally, a co-founder also brings a different perspective and a different problem solving thought process along with himself/herself.

In this event we will look at the roles of a co-founder in what would be the best ways of finding a co-founder.

Agenda:

10 am - Registrations begin

10:15 am - Welcome Note and Talk on the Demo Day as we await the members coming in

10:25 am - Introductions by all Members

10:50 am - The Core Team takes turns as 3 members talk about their take on Co-Founders and their own experiences for 5 minutes each.

11:00 am - Mr. Niladri addresses the members on what we need to look out for from our co-founders.

11:20 am - Member Presentation on their product/services Mr. Harshavardhan

11:30 am Interactive Game

11:45 am - Break for 15 minutes

12:00 pm - Three to Five members Volunteer on their take & experience on Co-Founders for 5 minutes each 

12:20 pm open Networking

We hope to have many more attendees, as we are keen to connect with every member of our Club.

The event cost will be Rs. 200/-

  • Anshil Rajan J.

    What is the difference between a founder and a co-founder.. what role do they play.. how well they connect with the founder..

    September 27, 2013

    • Salma M.

      There is just one role both or all founders play.. Passion to take forward the idea/project/company to the next level.. How they do it is by sharing the responsibilities and doing wat needs to be done..

      1 · September 28, 2013

    • Salma M.

      Connecting with each other... Wen something hits one founder and the other founder feels the pain, u can say its connected.. Take our example Anshil, something close hit you yesterday in the company and both Vivek and I felt the pain and we both immediately reacted na, in our own ways.. That u call a connection between founders

      September 28, 2013

  • Anshil Rajan J.

    Co founder needed or not?.. if so on what parameters. .

    September 27, 2013

    • Salma M.

      Co-founder needed.. Yes, no one can ever do everything. Parameters... Simple who is ready to give the maximum, put the company ahead of him and us able to sympathise with the co-founder to see each other's problems as one and try to solve it out.. U have all the ingredients for a great Co-founder..

      September 28, 2013

  • Anshil Rajan J.

    Dear members .. what if I tell startup club was a reason to start my company. . Would love to connect to you all..

    1 · September 27, 2013

  • Arnab Pal C.

    One question..How easy/hard is it to have your spouse as the co-founder??

    September 18, 2013

    • Salma M.

      As long as you are able to draw that line between your professional hours n personal hours, it becomes very easy if not it could turn out to be fatal for both, personal & professional life..

      September 18, 2013

    • Anshil Rajan J.

  • Salma M.

    a question which has popped up everywhere co-founders are spoken. "Co-founders are made in universities" and stop to think, I never attended college and found the world's best co-founder... Now wat do u think members? What is you take at this?

    September 17, 2013

    • Krushna S.

      For me I met my cofounder in college... by default you get to spend a lot of time with your college buddies and share & discuss your ideas with them.... that makes it easy to get a cofounder in college...
