Starting a Company While Staying a Couple

#sxsw #couplesinc

What's it like starting a company with your significant other? Your work and home life will lose separation. Some VCs won't fund you as a matter of principle. But at the same time, you get to obsess about work together, long hours aren't quite so hard to bear, emotional support is baked into your company's DNA, and you get to see each other 24x7...
This panel will feature veterans of the startup-plus-couple life - Aye Moah and Alex Moore from Baydin, and Mendel Chuang and Derek Langton from Smoopa. Both couples have been together for over a decade and have been working together for over 3 years.

We will provide insight onto how we've made it work, stumbling blocks and how we got past them, plus the best practices we've discovered while working together on a company.
