If it is the first time you are creating a mobile app and you don’t have the experience and technical skills here there are our recommendations:
1 Do not fall in love with your own ideas and remember that you are developing for the end users, not for yourself.
Can you say in one single sentence the problem your app is solving? If not, probably you should reconsider the app concept.
Tech co-founders should not only code, but also bridge the gap between the market and the product.
2- Cost of opportunity. Consider different development options and work out the hidden costs of opportunity behind each of them. Make sure when choosing a tech co-founder, he or she has the tech skills to develop both the frontend and the backend, and work out the developing time, the risks and costs of opportunity of each option you have.
3- Get product-market fit before thinking about growth. In this first step choose the right people that will help you achieving this first goal. Don’t try to run too fast.
4- A co-founder is like a marriage, and you don’t want just a one night stand, you want to marry “The one”. In the UK technical profiles are highly demanded so you should be the most beautiful bride. Consider rising angel investment or pre-angel investment first, that will allow you to choose the team you want to work with.
