There are currently 3 cofounders and 1 of them is an engineer other 2 are sales representatives. Many of the times technical cofounder doesn't agree with our views and is backed by his team containing mostly his friends. While all the technical team is at early twenties graduated from top colleges, sales reps are having atleast 15 years of experience. Because of generation gap, difference in background, sales reps idea won't match with technical founder.
Can we divorce technical founder. We got angel investment of few hundreds of thousands and will be going for first round of VC. Most probably the whole technical team(3 in total) will back the founder as they are from same college and are friends from long ago.
We are in to enterprise business and sell our softwares to them. sales reps take care of market etc. technical founder has minor equity.
Answering few comments: One of the main disagreement we see is in strategy. We want them to take as many engineers as they can say 10s of people in next few months and sell the software with some customisation to 100s enterprises.They have their own reasons and believe in hiring slowly and carefully. they cite different reasons like growth needs to be organic, scalable etc. They also feel they are not given much importance during the decision making. We have investment and client s mostly because of sales contacts though technical team also has done their part of hardwork by developing it.
I am afraid I cannot replace the whole team because the product which is a software as a service will stop working. Sales reps don't even know where the code is and how to run that.
We have huge contacts and believe that the existing technical team is making strategic mistake by not scaling very fast thereby loosing revenue. Currently 2 sales reps are not able to work to capacity because of small technical team. We believe they are not building team as fast as they should.
