How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Product definition and strategy - I love identifying product niches and I have hands on experience bringing ideas to market.

Have a couple ideas, and eventually looking to build the next team but haven't locked in on exactly what that will be just yet.

I believe founder 'chemistry' is vital to successful small business incubation.
