Cofounding a business is a lot like getting married and raising a baby together. But in startups, like in love, it can be obscenely hard to find a partner. What's worse, more than 50% of marriages end in divorce! And yet, it's a widely held belief that startups do better when there's more than one founder at the helm, and most investors are weary of betting on solo founders, especially if they are unproven. So where does that leave you? Do you really need a cofounder? How do you find one, and how do you make it work? Come listen to a panel of founders who've gone at it alone and together, and meet potential cofounders in the audience.
