Inside FI gives you exclusive access inside the training sessions of the Founder Institute. To get updates when we release new videos, follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our weekly newsletter here

A startup is a network of human relationships, often centered around the relationship between Co-Founders. As Misha Chellam explains in the video below, several themes are often common at the start of lasting human relationships, including vulnerability, social proof, and a shared worldview.  

Misha is the Co-Founder & COO of Scanadu, a portable health device company working with NASA to build the Tricorder. He previously launched and ran the Founder Institute in Brussels, Belgium, was the business guy at a payment technology startup, and started and sold a commercial real estate company. 

Misha is also leading the upcoming Silicon Valley Founder Institute, which is currently accepting applications and hosting a free Intro to Lean Startup Methodologies on Wednesday September 5th, and an Information Session on Thursday September 6th.

In this talk from the Silicon Valley Founder Institute, Misha shares the stories of his successful human relationships, discusses approaches to "earning" a technical co-founder, and explains the topgrading methodology for hiring employees.
