How to Build a Strong Startup Team

Why do some startup fail and others succeed? Could it be the idea? Access to capital?  Perhaps the secret to startup success actually lies in who you choose as your cofounder. According to Joe Abraham, most successful companies started with just two things: complimentary cofounders, and team members. “Not all entrepreneurs are the same”, says Joe, “and when you begin to match people according to their entrepreneurial DNA, it's game- changing”.

In this talk from the 14th Founder Showcase, Joe Abraham, Founder of BOSI Global, explains his unique approach to helping startups find cofounders. How does this method work and could it be the secret to your startup’s success? Watch the video below to learn more.

Joe is a Mentor for the upcoming Autumn semester at the Chicago Founder Institute, which is currently accepting applications.
