    Many companies are founded with teams of two or more people. Some of these founding teams argue and disintegrate while others remain best of friends and prosper. How can you foster a winning partnership? What are the necessary buildling blocks to a successful relationship and correspondingly successful company? Come and hear from those with experience from all angles: as an entrepreneur, an investor, and a coach.

    Plus! Bring your own questions - we'll open up Q&A to the audience at the end.

    The Stanford Series is co-hosted by the GSB Center for Entrepreneurial Studies.
