April 29, 2015

April 29th

6:00pm: Panel begins
6:30pm: Get your questions answered! – 15 minute Q&A

EvoNexus @ The Vine – 5151 California Ave. Suite 150, Irvine 92617

Picking a business partner is like getting married without the sex. Should you pick a friend who you know? Should you pick someone you have worked with but don’t know well? How do you assess a potential business partner? How do your strengths and weaknesses impact your decision process? 65% of VC-backed startups fail because of the team.

This talk at EvoNexus will provide a framework in the decision process of identifying and evaluating business partners. In addition, a panel of entrepreneurs who have gone through the ups and downs with partners will discuss their experiences and answer questions.
