Task: Co-founder is the key to success

Required Question

Do you have a co-founder?


You may be a combination of the best programmer, the best designer, and the best businessman. However, we feel that starting a business is not only about skills, but also about execution. While we have seen many solo founders succeed, having a co-founder can really make things a lot easier. The reason why it's nice to have a co-founder is to compliment your skills, but most importantly to keep each other in check.
