Good episode? Give it some love!
When you read about startups or startup accelerators, you almost hear about teams of co-founders. That’s because there most often, having co-founders is the right way to go. But can a solo founder succeed? What’s a poor startup founder to do if s/he can’t find the right co-founders? Just hang-out and wait? In this episode of Distilling Venture Capital, I look at these questions. Below are some of the articles and resources that I mention.
