The Thing Nobody Tells You About Successful Co-Founding

  • PLATF9RM Tower Point 44 North Road, Floor 5 Brighton, BN1 1YR (map)

Humans are social creatures and happiest working with others. But business is a challenging environment, especially for those going into business together. So what’s the secret of successful co-founding?

This event is for anyone thinking about starting a company with someone else or who wants to develop the relationship with their co-founder. It’s also suitable for coaches and advisors working with co-founders.

The questions and experiences of the group will drive the event and it will be participatory. Expect absolutely no Powerpoint! You’ll hear some great stories, learn solid co-founding principles, and come away feeling buzzed about your next step.

The session will be led by Tom Nixon. Over 20 years he’s experienced the full rollercoaster of business, from founding, to growing, exiting, turnarounds and even closing. He is also involved in Peter Koenig’s research with over 500 entrepreneurs and founders, uncovering the secret sauce of how to realise a big creative idea. He’s a coach and advisor to creative founders and is building a software startup, Maptio. In other words: his knowledge in this field is assured!
