Every startup founder understands that they couldn’t do it all alone. They need someone, or even more people, to help them build the startup. Thus, they simply have to find co-founder(s) whom complement their skill sets. For example, if you are a business guy, then your co-founder should be more into tech things.
A co-founder exists to fill some major gaps in your own background, personality and skills. One popular formula is: one builds and one sells. However, we don’t normally mingle with those kind of people from different background. Even if we knew someone, we are not sure that he/she could be our co-founder.
You may not have a time to attend events where your future co-founder could be there. Or, you already start with your own network, but you still didn’t get anyone. As hard as it could be, finding a partner for your startup is possible.
