Re: How/Where to find another Entrepreneur for a project?

Are you looking for a co-founder or a sales rep? As others have mentioned, finding a co-founder who will invest the same blood, sweat and tears, is indeed a challenge.
A sales rep, really depends on your budget, incentives, and if you can convince her/him of the opportunity.

Have a look at:
https://www.cofoundme.org/
https://www.meetup.com/zhentre/
https://www.investiere.ch/jobs (maybe post your offer here)

...and tonight is the event I organise on a regular basis since 7 years. There is a (virtual) networking session as well, and over the years, I've heard of plenty of amazing connections being made.

Well, at this stage i wouldnt call him/her a co-founder, more like "partners in crime"

I have the product blueprints, all the people that i have give it to try it the loved it, so much that they are asking for the recipe, which im not giving it that easy...

Tasks for whoever wants to join:
  1. Create a business plan
  2. Define the production and escalability (i have thought about it and so, but would be nice to review it)
  3. Marketing
  4. Sales, Sales channels
  5. Make profit... ideally...
  6. Reinvest, grow...

What's your product and where do you plan/envision to sell it? Find your clients first. Or better said, get to know who and where your potential clients are.

Well, basically whoever buys Nutella would potentially try this one out too

In order to see what is the market for it we can simply ask google who looks for Nutella, then we will be able to see Sex, Age, Demographics, etc...

question is not so much what you call him, but how much equity will you give him (if any).

Partners are partners, 50/50.

From my experience, if the others people share is big then they will care more

Re: How/Where to find another Entrepreneur for a project?

So, I took a look at the links...

- https://www.cofoundme.org - unfortunately there is no much market in Switzerland
- https://www.meetup.com/zhentre - No upcoming event...
- https://www.investiere.ch/jobs - Startup jobs, im looking more for a Partner / Co-founder

- https://www.startupgrind.com/events/...itzerland-1/#/ - it sends me to a "The page you requested does not exist."
