Are the odds against me for raising money unless I get a co-founder first? I'm a non-technical founder who is building a product similar to ThemeForst (a marketplace for designs).
If two startups had the same amount of traction, but one only has a single founder... would that effect being able to raising capital?
If you are actually building a product as a solo founder, then you are fine. The problem is with solo founders who dream up an idea but can't build anything. Whethe you hired someone or found a co-founder doesnt't much.
The path is idea -> product -> users. If you are making progress on that path, don't worry about what anyone else would say. If you are stuck, then you need to think this over.
