Deciding to leave your full-time job for your startup isn’t easy. But what happens when one founder is on board and the other would rather continue to take home a steady paycheck?
That issue plays itself out in the third episode of TechStars, where one company’s co-founder decides to stick with their day job instead of join the accelerator program full-time. The problem: she still wants to keep her unvested equity in the startup she helped create.
In this episode, we also see the TechStars startups deal with challenges defining their business models and face questions from investors over their expertise in the industry they’re trying to transform (New York City real estate).
Check out the latest episode above, and be sure to leave your thoughts on the topic in the comments below.
