Angels Prefer to invest in co-founders
with complementary skills, perspectives and experiences...
but often shy away from solopreneurs near the end of their careers

If you're one of 41 million solopreneurs in the US, consider finding a business partner twice or half your age and become more profitable.
Not having the right team is one of the top reasons startups fail. Often, it’s a lack of diversity in the team. When we think about diversity, we often think about race and gender. But there's another, often overlooked component of diversity that every startup can use to become more credible, more impactful, and more successful
