In search of a Co-Founder to join me in my journey

AI, Fintech, Humanity

Hey guys, I'm new here and I only came to know about what a startup is a few months ago. But I've been thinking about how to change an industry for the better for years now. So I thought I would look around and see if this would be of use to me. I have been helping people execute their ideas and grow their business throughout my career and now that I have some time on my hands, I would like to pursue my own idea. With all of that being said my questions are:

1. How would one go about finding a Co-Founder here?
2. Who builds AI-powered apps and where can I find them? What are their job titles?
3. What do you look for in a Co-Founder?

I hope some of you can give me some pointers. Thank you in advance.

Hey there,

This is a personal opinion, just in case it helps.

Answering the Q3 first, "What do you look for in a Co-Founder?"
We all have a certain set of individual skill set. It is important for one to have a clear understanding of the skills you have and the one's you don't have. For example, you could be someone who is great with design and development but lack sales and negotiation skills, or vice-versa. One must be able to envision the kind of skills most important for the business to strive, and look for the skills, you might not be the best at, in your co-founder.

To sum it up, to have an answer for the question "What value do you want this individual to bring?"

In terms of personal skills, it is important to have trust and one common vision. Your co-founder should believe in the idea or the project as much as you do. To put simply, "if the team is not sold on the idea, how will the clients be"

Jumping up to Q1, "How would one go about finding a Co-Founder here?"
Networking and finding like minded people and hoping to run into "the one'. Or alternatively, hunting for them LinkedIn and meeting them to discuss and see if they are interested.

Q2. Who builds AI-powered apps and where can I find them? What are their job titles?
They are so many ways to get this done. You can find a freelancer, an agency (like ours) or simply hire a front end and a back end developer.

I hope this helps.

All the very best!
