Weaving together a stronger co-founder partnership
Building a startup is hard and the strength of your partnership matters. Infuse your co-founder relationship with more honesty, alignment and resiliency.
What it is
Tapestry is an investment in your co-founder partnership
Tapestry is a template and a ritual that unites co-founders. It’s a framework and process that leads to a stronger and healthier partnership. By answering a series of questions separately, then bringing them together you’ll emerge with a personal manual and shared language for working better, together. The template can be self guided, or coach guided - it's entirely up to you. The investment of time and energy can payoff tomorrow or in 5 years. You get out of the Tapestry exercise what you put into it.Who is Tapestry for? This exercise is for co-founders that are interested in investing in their working partnership. Most likely you are ready to embark on the journey together, and decided to co-found something.

How it works
Delivered as a Template
This template is a series of questions you and your partner go through separately, then bring together. This becomes a living document bringing together people, ideas, and intentions. The Tapestry exercise is for you, your employees, and even board members and advisors. It can act as an operating manual for the founders, and anyone else who reads it.
