Brad inspired during BlogHer Entrepreneurs 12 with his call for women starting companies to be bold and presumptive about the outcome.
Brad is sharing three tips for networking for a co-founder with TXSW:
- Show up where other co-founders hang out. Go to meetups, go to conferences, and make yourself visible.
- Be clear that you are looking for a co-founder, not an employee. This is especially important if you are looking for a technical co-founder. You aren’t hiring someone – you want the person to go on a long term journey with you.
- Be open about your idea. Let the idea breath – give it oxygen – so it gets better over time. If you can’t get a co-founder excited about it, then there might be something wrong with the idea.
