Advice from founders about building a founding team

Several startup founders discuss the importance of building a strong founding team, share the lessons that they have learnt along the way and offer their advice to other founders on how to work together successfully.

Founders’ Tips:

  • Seek founders with different skills
  • Join a project you believe in
  • A co-founder can be a sparring partner and motivator
  • As a sole founder, you can make decisions faster and drive through your own vision
  • You have to trust your co-founder or founders
  • In the beginning, you have a lot of changes, and you have to discuss teem regularly and be open about them
  • You can’t learn everything from a book or training. You must talk to people.
  • Meet regularly to discuss feelings, likes and dislikes and work out how to improve
  • Discuss your visions for the company and don’t avoid discussing taboo topics until it’s too late
