Q: Should both founders be at investor pitches, or just one is one? Both own 50% BTW.
The CEO should always be at every VC pitch.
The other founder? It is nice to have her / him there, especially if she or he can answer certain questions (e.g., product, technology) with special authority.
1+1 definitely is more than 2 with a VC pitch if the +1 is part of the core value proposition — especially after the initial pitch.
I always brought my co-founder. And I made sure we practiced, and she always spoke to the slides and points she was strongest at … and I took the rest.
Talking over each other though, and not being aligned? Not a positive 🙂
