Should you look for a co-founder prior to developing a project or wait until after it has launched and shows some signs of success?
Do you spend the time and resources up front to find someone even though the project may not be successful? This way you can start over more quickly.
Or launch first, try to gain some traction and then look for a partner? Does waiting offer a better chance of finding someone or of finding someone of higher "quality"?
Which is the better way to go?
I would suggest getting a co-founder as soon as possible. Doing a startup is a very challenging work. Doing it alone makes it ever harder. There are a couple of reasons why you should get one sooner rather than later:
Hope this helps.
Get the word out that you are looking for a co-founder. Maybe you don't throw a lot of dollars or spend all your time on it. You can always put more effort into it once the project gets moving.
