Need a few good business partners? Sometimes the best recruits are the ones you already know.
Launching a business is hard, so it’s no wonder the majority of entrepreneurs refuse to go it alone.
Some find their partner at school or at work, while others look in more unusual places.
We asked a few entrepreneurs to share where they found their talent and how it worked out. Here’s what they told us.
Launching a business is a lot like sports, says Jeff Salter, founder of Caring Senior Service, who found his future business partners while playing rugby.
“When out on the field, I felt I was able to see the players’ true leadership potential,” he said. “Whether it was seeing how they handled and learned from constructive criticism or that they thrived under stressful conditions, I was certain that the members I chose would work well with one another and bring the drive needed to make my business a success.”
When Ted Fienning and his wife, Molly, were planning to launch Babiators, a line of aviator sunglasses for babies, they turned to Fienning’s a cappella partner Matthew Guard and his wife Carolyn.
