Hi guys, it’s taken me a while to realize that I may really need a co-founder to kick-start my startup. I’m not a very trusting person, and I’m looking for certain qualification in a co-founder that’s hard to come by. It’s been hard to find a great match, so I thought I should just do a post here.

I’ve had many ideas over the years but this one idea that I have is really great. At the same time, it’s much  bigger and I don’t think I’ll be able to pull this off alone. I need a great ambitions business savvy person to team-up with and make this Startup a reality.

I’ve been to many startup events/conferences recently and it seems most investors are looking for at least 2 person team, which is another reason for a co-founder.

My Qualifications

-        10+ years of Web Development experience

-        Architected and Leaded development of 100s of systems of all levels.

-        Ambitious and committed to the goal

-        Have a great idea and a great Domain

-        Current Role: Web Solutions Architect and Lead Developer at a major Bank.

-        Easy to work with

-        And of course, a Domainer :)

 

 

Co-Founder Qualifications:

-        Los Angeles based

-        Business savvy co-founder with successful track record

-        Have prior successful startup experience Or have a great career in your field

-        Great public speaker and great at pitching ideas.

-        Be able to handle all startup related documents/contracts

-        Hard Worker, ambitious, entrepreneurial

-        20k+ investment – this is more than just seed money to me, it shows how committed and serious you are.

-        20-30/ hours of free time per week. You don’t have to quite your job, so this means a lot of evening/weekend work. Your personal life has to allow this, I know it’s not easy.

-        Be able to meet 2-3 times a week

-        Connections to potential investors ( nice to have)

 

I know it seems like a long list, but I really want this project to be successful. If you are interested and fit the qualifications, contact me soon. Or if you know anyone who would be a great fit, do pass this message to him/her.

We don’t have to be a 2 member team, so if you’re in LA and are interested being part of our team, contact me as well. But this is a key role and I want to fill this role before I can consider any other roles/team members.

And as always, I will keep you guys updated on the process.
