Cofounder Checklist: Build Sh*t & Sell Sh*t

(I believe) Larry Ellison famously quoted company building as “building sh*t and selling sh*t.” This always resonated with me for its complexity and elegance… :)

In following up with my last post on How to be a co-founder, I put my Excel (Google Sheets) where my mouth is and created v1 of a Cofounder checklist.

Here is my v1 checklist — I am excited to get comments and feedback. The list will never be longer than 20 items, but all items are fair game to get upgraded.

Kudos to Aaref Hilaly for giving me the last item — he asked the best question during my four rounds of fundraising while at Kahuna.
