I am a founder myself & currently looking for a co-founder, but it's hard to trust a stranger.

Ideally they are strangers you met at a networking event/hackathon. My checklist was: -Their level of ambition (must be super high) -How much initiative they take -They have the right balance of sticking to their guns when they're right but also changing their mind when evidence is presented. -Gotta be good at what they do (of course!)

My co-founder and I used "50 Questions to Explore with A Potential Co-Founder." I highly recommend the list as the questions range from personal to strategic. https://review.firstround.com/th...
