A Startup Weekend event is a great opportunity to take an idea from concept to reality. It’s also a great opportunity to work with other people and potentially meet your future co-founder(s). But what is it like navigating the early parts of these relationships?

NPR’s Planet Money podcast recently did a great episode that follows the story of one entrepreneur’s experience finding a great potential co-founder and navigating the difficult waters of negotiating early equity splits.

During a Startup Weekend, you won’t be dealing with negotiating equity splits – there isn’t time. But if you’re curious about what it’s like building those early relationships, this podcast is worth the listen!
