Why Finding the Right Co-Founder is Critical to Startup Success - with Martin Novak

Martin Novak is the co-founder of Visidom, a SaaS tool that records your website visitors interactions and creates custom heatmaps, so you can see exactly how people are interacting with your website.

Key Talking Points

  • How Martin and his co-founder Michael Repetný came up with the idea for the product and why being ‘naive' helped them.
  • How their previous startups (service businesses) helped to identify the opportunity and also validate the idea.
  • How Martin and Michael bootstrapped with just ‘tens of thousands of dollars' and why too much bootstrapping is not a good thing.
  • Why applying for Y Combinator was an amazing experience for the team even though they didn't get accepted.
  • How the two co-founders realized that they were often ‘clashing' and what they decided to do about it.

Success Quote

  • “Anything is possible. You just have to set a goal and then try to achieve it.”
