Founders Clinic: Finding co-founders and building your team
Thursday, 7 February 2013 from 10:00 to 13:30 (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
Are you looking for co-founders? Do you know how much equity will you give them and how would you structure it? Do you know what are the skills and personality you need to build your team?
In this workshop we will talk about the personality and skill-set that are needed when starting a new venture. It will be a practical workshop in which we will discuss tools that can help you identify the right founding team for your startup.
The workshop is kindly supported by Dorsey & Whitney. Frances Doherty, Partner at Dorsey & Whitney will be with us during part of the workshop in order to solve the legal questions you might have related to your startup.
Starting a new venture is hard. Doing it alone is even harder. Did you know that startups with both technical and business cofounders raise 30% more money and scale up to 3.2 times faster than one-person startups? If you are looking for a co-founder or you want to join a startup in the founding team, this workshop can help you accelerate and optimise the selection process.

- Entrepreneurs who are looking for co-founders and management team members
- Entrepreneurs who are looking to join a startup and want to learn about the terms they should be looking for when joining as co-founders
- Entrepreneurs who want to know how to structure founders agreements.
