The right partner puts business on easy mode.

Here's the A-Z guide how.

Most people don't realize how much a partnership affects the strength of their business. The right cofounder multiplies your success. But the wrong partner divides your attention and effort, leaving your business at risk for conquest by a united competitor.

Entrepreneurs are told to focus on the right product, right price, and right positioning. Yet what gets left out is how partnership is either the company's best asset or worst liability.

The Cofounder's Handbook brings business partnerships into the spotlight where they belong. This book is the first complete field guide to cover everything from finding a cofounder to managing the complexities of the relationship to troubleshooting any dysfunction on through exiting the partnership with the lowest impact on operations possible.

The Cofounder's Handbook is written from the insights and perspectives of numerous cofounders who suffered from partnerships gone wrong and who excelled alongside the right person. Unlike advice from business coaches and academics, this book provides practical, proven tips and tools real-world cofounders have used to build rewarding partnerships and grow their companies to multi-billion valuations.

This book is for you if you are:

  • Wondering whether you need a partner or not
  • Already looking for a cofounder
  • Vetting potential business partners
  • Securing and contracting a partnership
  • Navigating the intricacies of an existing relationship
  • Troubleshooting issues within the partnership
  • Needing to end the relationship ethically
  • Starting over as a solo founder after a partnership
  • The Cofounder's Handbook is the practical, friendly guide for finding, securing, managing, and exiting business partnerships.
