When the business side co-founder seeks a tech side co-founder for an online video platform, what skill set, questions to ask, and personality do you think I should focus on?

Reginald, great question. It's vitally important that you and your technical cofounder get along personally. Starting a company is like getting married. However, when you get traction with your company, divorcing you cofounder quickly becomes a problem. Make sure they have or have access to the skills required to build your product specifically. If it's a web app, a full stack engineer can build the front end, back end, and UI/UX. When looking for a cofounder, it's a lot like dating. Be cool, but hunt hard. Good luck!
