Why Cofounding

Cofounding a business has several benefits.

By combining resources, knowledge, expertise and motivation, cofounders can often build something far more successful together compared to going solo.

Nevertheless, 70% of startups fail because of disagreements between founders. Why? Because co-founding isn’t as simple as drawing up an agreement and shaking hands on it.

Get your cofounding team right, and you’ll be in the best possible position to handle any challenge that’s thrown in your direction.

Get it wrong, and not even the best business idea will be able to survive.

Partnerships make sense. They create more innovation, growth and prosperity than any solo individual, but they seem to be very hard to get right.

Our services

・Lack of knowledge.-

To fix it, we focus holistically on the full process — from finding the right cofounders to structuring the co-founding teams and incentives up to equity splits and cofounding agreements.

About Us


Cofounding was founded by Jana Nevrlka – who simply realised, that there must be a better way to how we do business partnerships. And since she did not find much knowledge or support available – decided to fill the gap herself.

Jana Nevrlka has spent the past 5 years learning what’s required to build better business partnerships – and applying that knowledge to helping cofounders across Europe build successful and lasting businesses.

Combining her legal and business background with her entrepreneurial experience, Jana writes and speaks extensively on the subject, works as a cofounding mentor for a number of startup accelerators and organizes a knowledge-sharing platform called the Swiss Startups Club. In addition to all that, Jana coordinates the development of dynamic equity split templates in Europe.
