My answer to Is it better to have a partner when you are starting a startup?

Answer by Trevor Carss:

I believe it is better to have a co-founder when you are starting a startup.

If that co-founder is willing to work as hard as you, complements your skill sets and keeps you accountable in good times and bad, your business will grow much more quickly than if you had worked on it alone.

Think Jobs and Wozniak, Gates and Allen, Buffett and Munger. Co-founders. The best businessmen in the world had a partner.
