In a lot of technical startups, great non-technical founders (or co-founders) are hard to find.

We all know that there are far too many “idea guys” out there that don’t know what it truly takes to run a startup. At the same time though, there are many highly-qualified non-technical people out there that can bring a lot to the table but never get an opportunity because of their lack of technical skill.

It’s for this reason that I wanted to create a resource to make the nontechnical founder more productive and useful than ever before. A place that they can come to for tips, insight, and strategic advice to not only become successful business leaders, but to also gel better within their own startups which are very much technology oriented.

So I ask you, as a non-technical founder, what would you like to see? If you could have a place that gives you insight on how to become a better nontechnical founder, what would you want to learn? Here are just a few ideas I’ve had:

-Mixergy-style interviews of nontechnical founders that have found success
-Beginner’s guide on designing, programming, and web development. (basic primers to get you acquainted with necessary technology)
-Detailed tips on marketing during all stages (development, beta stage, etc)
-Weekly question and answers (questions ranging from: presentation tips, angel investing, etc)

But what I really want to know is what you want to see. I am, by no means, an expert in these topics, and that’s why I’m willing to find experts on these topics to bring the most information and value to you. So please email me or comment and let me know:

As a nontechnical founder, what would you like to see?

A lot of people have been asking how I found my technical cofounder (I found him online since I didn’t know any prior to meeting him). So I decided to make a few videos to explain the process. They are 100% free and I just hope they help. Enter your email to get the videos:

If you’d like more information on the free video course, get more information

    I think the question will provide some insight but ultimately is a flawed question. You don’t know what you don’t know. Asking a non-technical founder what they would like to see will generate a lot generic surface level answers. Rather, the question should be geared towards people who have experience as to what a non-technical founder should know and those are the things they should be learning and finding answers and resources on.

    Disclaimer: While I’m technical, I’ve played both a technical as well as a non-technical founder.
