Very often businesses go through this dilemma of finding the right co-founder, and in many cases, whether there is a need for a co-founder is also a question. Here's a quick brief summary of why is important to have co-founders in a business.
If the founder does not have money to pay but needs the skill, knowledge, experience of someone for his business, he may think of bringing in a Co-founder i.e. offering ownership in Business against fees/salary/charges to someone.
Another advantage is, Co-founder brings in his network, resources & vision.
He gets paid only when the business succeeds which ensures he/she puts his/her best foot forward with complete dedication, commitment and expertise.
One of the many skills of a co-founder is that he/she is supposed to be good in many areas of the business that are consistently evolving or are very critical.
Investors feel more secured in a business that is not dependent on just one individual, and they feel assured and more confident when they see a team.
