I really never thought the debate of Sales Vs Tech Cofounder was going to arise at any point.
How that is now even related to why GoMyWay failed even baffles me more and I am saying this in respect of why a startup has to have cofounders with every skill before it can succeed.
A great team is a great team regardless of whether the sales guru is a cofounder or not.
Someone mentioned Elon Musk hiring a manufacturing guru from Toyota, he didn't ask the dude to join him as co-founder.
I think it's also inconceivable that Gomyway did not have a sales team! I don't see how anyone would have invested in an idea that didn't have a sales team ... and well, they got funding.
On why Gomyway failed, there's probably only one person who knows why and at what point - Dami
One more thing,
I see most people saying business is business in Nigeria and that you have to make money from the get go. With all due respect, this is why we seldom see exits in Nigeria's startup scene. A startup is characterized with a high dose of the interchange between high risk and high reward.
If Dami ever writes, please someone should please put it up here.
