Is startup with remote founders possible?

    people used to believe that everyone needed to be in the same room--especially the co-founders.

    during a pandemic??

    Anything is possible! heck, angel investors are investing without meeting founders in person.

      Completely agree! And tools for remote working (and remote investing, I suppose) are already available. :-)

    My cofounder and I started remote - after having worked together in person for some time. It's been great.

    We catch up twice a week, and occasionally meet for a full-weekend hackathon when we work on something specific, at the same time, and want to get it out the door quickly.

    If you started without knowing each other well beforehand, I can see how that might be tough. The hard part with remote working, I find, isn't the work, it's building relationships. If you have that behind you, you should be fine.

    Hope this helps,

    Hell yes. It's not perfect, but yeah, can be done. I'm working from Buenos Aires and my business partner from Miami.
    The only issue that might complicate you is a big time difference. I have a developer in India and sometimes it is hard to have some conversations.
