MBA1770 Q&A Wednesday: Should I start my software company without a co-founder?

Can non-tech people run successful tech startups?

It’s a common question. As co-founder of a SaaS business, our host Omar is a pretty good example of what non-techies can do in the software game. 

But he’s not doing it alone, of course.

It’s Q&A Wednesday, and we’re helping one listener who’s got the basics in place. There’s a software product, a solid group of beta testers, and experience in business. 

But he’s just not sure if he can scale without an expert co-founder.

Tune in as we discuss the ups and downs of running a software company with only average engineering chops. We’ll explain why it can work, what can go wrong, and what you’ll need.
