If you want to start a new SaaS business in 2021
without tearing your hair out, my advice is:


Find a co-founder.


You shouldn’t have to do it all on your own… and it’s better that you don’t.


Finding the right co-founder means having someone who will work just as hard as you, can do the things you can’t, and gives your business a fighting chance in the market.


If you’re a non-technical founder, that could mean finding someone technical. 


You grow the business, they build the product.


Or if you are a technical founder, then it means finding someone that can help you assemble a world-class team and market your product effortlessly while you write the code.


But picking the wrong co-founder spells D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R. 


You end up losing a big slice of the most valuable asset in your business:


Equity.


Don’t ever, EVER, EVER give equity to the wrong co-founder.


So how do you find the right co-founder? How do you track them down and get them interested? How do you negotiate a fair equity split?


I’ve got you covered.


This week’s video is the 5-steps to finding the perfect co-founder for your startup.


We’re going to break this down logically and uncover:


- What to look for in a co-founder

- Where to find a technical co-founder

- How to know they are right for you

- What to say on your first introduction

- How to discuss equity

- The safest way to split equity fairly



Every SaaS company I’ve launched has been with co-founders. I even launched Spheric with a co-founding team of 4.


Could I have launched my businesses entirely on my own? Maybe.


But growth would have been slower, I’d have torn my hair out, and my family life would have suffered. 


I like working with people… and my businesses are better for it.


Yours can be too. Check out the video here and drop me a comment if you have any questions.
