Why does My Cofounder Do That?

Interview a group of Cofounders about interpersonal dynamics between them and their other founder and you’ll very likely hear “I just don’t get why they do this or that!” It’s a common refrain, one that points to the difficulties of a sound Cofounder relationship. To improve this relationship, it’s important to look inward at one’s own motivations and feelings and to work diligently to build trust.

Every Interaction is a 50/50

There are two sides to every conversation. It’s important to remember that every interaction with your cofounder involves each of you contributing to 50 percent of the conversation, which includes actual speaking, body language, etc. It’s not a superior-subordinate dynamic where the “superior’s” opinion often needs to carry more weight because they’re fully responsible for the other’s wellbeing

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.

Are you ready for the only proven test to help CoFounders choose and optimize your relationships? Our personality assessments predict conflict, team compatibility, success and failure. With our outcomes you can put strategies in place before conflict and inefficiency arise.

We look forward to walking you through the 3 most common mistakes CoFounders make when choosing a partner.
