Ask HN: Would you partner with a development shop to build your startup?
2 points by anton_a 8 months ago | hide | past | web | favorite
Full disclosure: I'm running a software development shop. I don't want this text to look like a self promotion, so I will not put here any specific information about the company. Just my questions and answers to your questions, if you have any. My goal is to figure out how I can build a dev shop specifically for startup founders.

1. On which conditions would you consider to use a software development company as long term partner for your startup development?

2. What should this company accomplish in order to prove that it worthy to rely on?

3. Would you prefer to share equity in order to ensure that software development shop is interested in your startup success, not just code writing? Or there are better ways to prove that dev shop goals align with yours?

Thank you for your time!
