I'm starting a new post-secondary school (college) that is project-based and the curriculum is student-centered and have definitely bit off a lot to chew. Funding and a partner would be nice. Question: Where do I find a person who fits both bills and may share my vision?
A couple of ideas:
Something else Ryan, that I learnt from a friend of mine who is a really smart entrepreneur, is to recruit people with specific skills to do a specific role. In other words, when he partners with someone, he knows exactly what skills he needs them to bring to the business and what they will contribute and he writes this into the agreement.
He learnt this the hard way after making someone a director in the early days because they were enthusiastic and had contacts, but they didn't pull their weight and can't be relied upon to fulfill their commitments. Now they own a chunk of the business and don't do much.
