One of the main reasons startups fail is due to the founders and picking the wrong co-founder for your startup can be detrimental. VC backing obviously isn’t on the table for everyone and 75% of the companies that do manage to get funding from VCs still fail. There are several reasons why and VCs don’t always have the company’s best interest in mind in the first place but most of the time valuable advice is ignored by prideful founders.
Founder “dating” sites exist where users can create profiles and try to find business partners. Startup events will often have workshops on the art of finding the right co-founder. This is a real problem and any serial entrepreneur probably has a co-founder horror story or two they can share.
Early stage businesses are tough because it’s too early in the game to hire many full-time staff members. Having a technical co-founder is almost a pre-requisite when you’re still trying to validate your business idea and find product market fit. It’s not uncommon for the founding team to have a developer and/or designer in the mix for this reason. That’s where we come in.
Maybe your networking hasn’t turned up any candidates with the technical skillset required. Maybe you’ve met someone who meets the technical requirements but isn’t a good fit culturally. Whatever the case may be, we offer co-founder as a service at T R I M for select founders and their products. We vet candidates and vice versa but if it’s a good mutual fit, we will join your product team at a discounted rate plus equity.
With T R I M on your side, you get access to our team of engineers, product designers, and strategists. In addition to designing and building your product for you, we can do additional market research, conduct user research, market your product, network, and more.
Plus, with footprints in NYC and South Florida, we are positioned to tap in to two of the biggest tech hubs on the east coast of the US on your behalf.
If you think co-founder as a service would benefit you and your company, let’s talk. Reach out to us here and we can start the conversation. We’re looking forward to hearing from you, let’s build something great.
