Cofounders Synergy Workshop

May 26 online, free

EEST (UTC+3) 18:00-19:30; PDT (UTC-7) 8:00-9:30

The best time to work on founders' relationships is when all is going well; the second-best - before it's too late. This online workshop is for startup and scale-up co-founders and leaders of business teams.


It takes courage to admit something is not working in relationship with your cofounder. Unspoken frustration is powerful and can sabotage the relationship and also the business. Learn how to avoid such situation and if it's already happening, how to grow from there

In this free workshop,

  • .Cocoon Program leaders and mentors share proven methods to build solid founders and team relationships. The methods the founders of high-growth companies use.

  • We will also have a guest from Miro, who will share their lessons learned while scaling Miro to be the unicorn it is today. 

The workshop is organized by .Cocoon in collaboration with sTARTUp Day and Miro.


Methods to build solid founders relationships

  • How to use anger in a mature way;

  • How to navigate shadow repression and projections;

  • How to use the power of openness and confrontation without conflicting.

Clients' feedback


Ranno Käomägi

Hristo is a peculiar individual, in the best possible way. His method of discovering the circumstances by asking seemingly unrelated questions at first, and then precisely pinpointing the core issue truly amazes me. Hristo's constructive suggestions have a noticeable impact already after a few days of following them. Powerful!

Ansis is a wizard. His deep understanding of the human psyche will help you look at yourself and your reality in an entirely new, deeply refreshing way. With just a few pointed questions he's able to get to the core of the issue at hand and give valuable advice at multiple levels of analysis.
