  • How To Choose, Rather than Just Find, Your CoFounder.

  • As people rush to form a company, many don't take the time to understand the person that they'll be partnering with. There’s a difference between knowing someone and knowing about them. Was friction inevitable or could it be prevented? Two years ago, Julia McNamara, of CoFounderworx set out to answer that question. In its work with a global tech accelerator, CoFounderworx found that 67% of teams broke up due to cofounder conflict, often within the first 3 years. The rigor of her research with 4,500 cofounders was supplemented by her prestigious Executive Panel - comprised of entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and academics from such prestigious institutions such as Columbia Business School, Insight Venture Partners, Comcast Ventures and ATT.

  • CoFounderworx’s research led to the development of the only science-based leadership assessment designed to measure cofounder compatibility and predict success and failure. Using their outcomes, companies and investors can put strategies in place before conflict and inefficiency arise.
    In this interactive session, McNamara will allow participants to take a portion of the test and explain its results.
    The assessment has not yet been released to the general public and is being offered on an exclusive basis to qualified CoFounders. For more information, contact
