How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Initially working together on a mutually beneficial relationship without necessarily committing to being coFounders. Once there is good level of confidence in each other's abilities and chemistry going, then move to the next level of partnership (i.e. being coFounders).

As an Advisor

May be weekly or bi-weekly call for an hour.
