Evo Speaker Series Kickoff - What to Consider When Choosing a Business Partner

Location: This is located in the UCI Research Park 

EvoNexus @ The Vine

5151 California Ave., Suite 150, Irvine, CA

Picking a business partner is like getting married without the sex. Should you pick a friend who you know? Should you pick someone you have worked with but don’t know well? How do you assess a potential business partner? How do your strengths and weaknesses impact your decision process? 65% of VC-backed startups fail because of the team. 

This talk at EvoNexus will provide a framework in the decision process of identifying and evaluating business partners. In addition, a panel of entrepreneurs who have gone through the ups and downs with partners will discuss their experiences and answer questions.  


5:30pm: Network with members of the OC Startup Community over some appetizers and beverages!
