Are you a Solo Entrepreneur or a Co-Founder?
What are the leadership characteristics of each?
Our brand new research has shown a pronounced difference in leadership values between solo founders and cofounders. Solo founders questioned by the company said they valued “personal grit” – tenacity and resilience – highly, while co-founders emphasized other competencies that made them successful.
Not everyone has the temperament to be a CoFounder.
Join us to for a lively discussion of the differences on Facebook Live.

As people rush to form a company, many don't take the time to understand the person that they'll be partnering with. There’s a difference between knowing someone and knowing about them. Consider all the different personas we present to all the different people we meet. How does one behave in front of a coworker versus a childhood friend? Many people rush into forming a company with someone, without truly understanding that person, or themselves!
The result: Co-Founder conflict
In our work with a global tech accelerator, CoFounderworx found that 67% of teams broke up due to cofounder conflict. And the sad part, that conflict is avoidable.
