Founding a Tech Startup in Silicon Valley with Raj Kapoor
Monday, October 15, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM (EDT)
Founding a Tech Startup in Silicon Valley – The Good, Bad, and Ugly with Raj Kapoor
This will be a must-see talk and discussion with successful entrepreneur/VC Raj Kapoor (HBS 96) - Managing Director, Mayfield Fund; cofounder/CEO of Snapfish; and now founder of "cofounder.co". He will also discuss his new model – cofounder.co - helping new entrepreneurs cofound companies in the bay area to give them the benefit of experience and his network.
cofounder.co is a new innovative entity to help startups and entrepreneurs reach their full potential in the Bay Area. We are a group of experienced partners with founder/CEO and investor experience (Raj Kapoor (successful cofounder/CEO of Snapfish and Managing Director at Mayfield Fund) is the first founding partner - others will be added later) that work very closely with a few tech startups (mostly internet and mobile for consumer/small business/enterprise) that either reside in the Bay Area or want to relocate there. A partner joins the company as a cofounder at the earliest stages (either at founding or sometime before funding) and spends the equivalent of one day a week (so they only do 4-5 startups at any time) helping in all areas of the company including financing, recruiting, strategy, product development, and mentoring the CEO. It’s a much more deeper and focused involvement than most angels, advisors, and accelerators and for a longer period of time (several years). As a minority cofounder shareholder in the company, we bring commitment and importantly - valuable experience that high potential entrepreneurs may be missing – either as its their first time being an entrepreneur or because they seasoned but entering a new sector.
