I am working on a software product, which is going to revolutionize a specific industry. I checked with couple of top guys in this industry and they are all impressed. It is a billion dollar problem. Now, I am moving on to get a co-founder and wondering whether to go with Ivy League MBA grad or someone well networked in the Industry. So the qualities or criteria I am looking into:
- Ivy League MBA
- Well networked in the Industry (Offline): Well connected with decision makers in this industry, can call them without intermediaries
- Well networked (Online): Well connected with VCs, Social Media etc
- Sales and Marketing Background
I myself well networked with Ivy league MBAs as well as top guys in Industry.
Any suggestions how to filter them is highly appreciated.
