    Learn from two pairs of co-founders who made it happen - Kim Fisher and Brian Fisher from AudioBasket, and Cliff Reid and David Glazer from Eloquent. Find out what the key issues are to building a successful business with a team; what to look for in a partner; and how to figure out if it's a good fit. The SDForum has prepared a set of questions to ask each panelist, and there will be plenty of time to ask what's on your mind.

    This evening will also give you a chance to meet others looking for a partner, learn what makes a strong founding team, and find the colleague that will be the foundation for your company. There will be an opportunity to network with like-minded individuals, some with technical expertise, others with a strong business mind. In addition, 20 of you will have one-minute with the microphone to announce who you are looking for, to help you manage your company. In addition, all pre-registered attendees can elect to be included in a list that will be made available at the event. To be included in this list, please send your name and a 50-word (or less) description of who you are and what you're looking for to by October 16.
