Today’s guest is Noam Wasserman. Noam is a professor at Harvard Business School and the author of the bestselling book, “The Founder’s Dilemmas.” In this episode, I am going to talk with him about the dilemma founders face when deciding whether they should go at it alone, or recruit a co-founder.
Noam Wasserman is a professor at Harvard Business School. For more than a decade, his research has focused on founders’ early decisions that can make or break the startup and its team.
