Garage Academy is pleased to host Entrepreneur First and Techstars for How to Find a Technical Co-Founder

If you're an individual looking to start your own tech company, but lack the necessary network to give your business a kick-start, here's your golden opportunity. It can be frustrating when you identify a tech business opportunity, but don't have a technical co-founder to bring your vision to life. One of the biggest challenges when looking to start a tech company, is the search for a complementary, committed co-founder. The person you need may not be in your personal network.


What can you bring home?

The panel will address several key questions that revolves around the theme of "how to build a company with a stranger"— Where to begin search for a technical co-founder, qualities to look for in a technical co-founder, how to build a strong positive working relationship with a technical co-founder.
