    When two people are starting an equal business as partners, what should their titles be?
    President and vice president puts one in more power than the other. Is their a title for an equal partner?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It could possibly depend on the type of business. I.e Sales Director / Finance Director etc or just plain Directors. At the start do they really need titles? Co-Owner works just as well at the start until things develop more.

    Welcome to Business Advice Forum adphoto and thanks for posting your business questions.

    I was also thinking along the lines of using the term Director. You might want to confirm that you are actually directors of the company. If you are not registered as directors you might call yourselves Founders, Partners, Executives, etc.

    What type of business will you be setting up?
