How to Lose Co-Founders and Alienate Startups
    Friday March 9, 2012 3:30pm - 4:30pm @ Hilton Austin Downtown (Salon D) (500 E 4th St, Austin, TX 78701)

    Most startup entrepreneurs, investors and incubators will tell you that two founders are better than one. What they won't tell you is two founders are more likely to try to kill each other - or at least kill their startup. Co-founder disasters are a bit of an industry taboo. We never hear about most of them. Many great entrepreneurs have had to sacrifice a beloved startup to learn valuable life lessons about working with partners. This panel brings together four entrepreneurs who lost their prior startups to infighting but survived to tell their tales in the hope that you can avoid some of their mistakes.
