I’m bootstrapping my startup myself. I know everyone says you need a team but it’s such a hassle to find a compatible co-founder. I’m a programmer – not so good on the biz dev side but am learning. Do you come across folks like myself who “made it”?
I can’t think of many off the top of my head where they were a solo founder and engineer. Aaron from Mint.com is the only one I know of without doing research, but I think he might have brought on a cofounder, too.
If you think it is a hassle finding a compatible cofounder now, wait until you have to do their jobs. Much bigger hassle.
