While the startup cofounder might be sought out by the original founder, or the founders might have had the idea from the beginning, the responsibility of a cofounder is extremely important. This is a position that is enormously gratifying and allows the cofounder to grow with their company. Unlike the corporate world, the startup cofounder can tailor their daily duties to their strengths. While there is a large amount to get done, both in the beginning and even more as the startup starts to grow in popularity, having the freedom to work where your strengths lie and truly lead the team is an experience that is rare for a traditional position of this stature. A startup cofounder must be able to work well with their team and likely will get to know them, considering they will be working side by side, as they all working towards making the same vision come to fruition.
