How important is an entrepreneur to the growth and success of a startup? There is the story of how Steve Wozniak remained a kid in the basement making computers till Steve Jobs came along. There is also the story of how Jeff Bezos started Amazon without the need for a co-founder to help him out. So what's the verdict? Well, the answer is - it depends.
Trust In Partnership
Having said that, Naval Ravikant, the founder of AngelList advises that the ideal co-founder will be of the same age and financial situation as you are. These are factors that will contribute to opinions on how to steer the company.
All said and done, there is no one-size-fits-all rule when it comes to finding a co-founder for your startup. Depending on what you do and how you do it, you may or may not need a co-founder. But if you are someone who appears to have stalled the progress on their business idea solely for the lack of a co-founder, do note that bigger companies have been built without a co-founder. So let the absence of a partner alone not make you sit idle on an idea. Get started and your hunt for a co-founder can always happen on the side.
