Maybe it's just semantics, but I am putting the word out that my biz will benefit from either.
We have pushed a product off the shelf and are starting to acquire customers, yet the effort has grown too large for me to handle it as efficiently as I'd like and work my day job. I have decided to give up some equity ownership in exchange for finding a partner that will get us to v2.0. This person would possess a complementary skill set.
Does Co-Founder imply more ownership, or is that just a more contemporary way of saying "Business Partner"? Which term do you prefer?
