Thank you, Brian Halligan, for sharing your insights at #MITEDP 2017. Here are my takeaways:
1. Co-founder selection – 2-3 are ideal:
Find co-founders that share similar values and bring complementary skills / networks. It’s also highly beneficial to have industry representation for the problem you’re trying to solve. The ideal number of co-founders are 2-3 – A higher number of co-founders often results in “uninspired compromise” – compromising on choices only to build consensus, resulting in less effective decision-making.
