When you first start up what is the best way to approach looking for a partner?

I'm building a platform for business development, investors and connecting some other factors in starting small businesses.

I am looking for a business partner in the Atlanta Area as this is a Hugh market for creativity and new ideas.


What is the best way to find a good partner that will elevate the brand as much as you will?

Finding a business partner is as random as finding job or a spouse. Platforms like FounderDating and CoFoundersLab help and serve as good communication platforms andfocal points forlike-minded people. Participating in local entrepreneur meet-ups and co-founder match-ups is also helpful as a targeted means of gaining exposure to other potential partners. You mayhave to search a bit to find these, but they're out there. Tap into your friends and respected business acquaintances and advisors, as well - people who may know someone who'd be a potential fit as a business partner. And, of course, participating in any kind of community event that's either relevant to what you do or that simply interests you. You never know where good leads will come from. While getting yourself out there and active doesn't guarantee you'll be successful, staying home guarantees you won't be! Increasing the opportunity for random encounters can be surprisingly effective.It very much needs to be an active and engaged process on many different fronts in order to be successful.

I would like to tell you there is a magic formula to solve the challenges of taking in "Partners." If there were a non and trial and error answer, I would sell it. Hire me to prescreen prospects.

Hi Alexius, I am a partner facilitator and mediator working on a platform that will help women like yourself. I find in my mediation practice that founders have business checklists for vetting partners but they don't always consider what the underlying relationship should look like for them. In your mental vision board, what does that perfect partner look like to you? That might help you to narrow your search a bit so that your encounters become less and less random. If you expand your geographical search as well, you might find a perfect match. I met someone here in LA who could be a good match for you. If interested reach out and I will be happy to share the contact with you. Good Luck!

Be absolutely clear what your strengths and weaknesses are personally. Find a partner that shores up your weaknesses and do not duplicate yourself. Then haunt where these people hangout.
