Via Siliconbeach mailing list. On Quora -- What is the perfect startup team?:
The perfect startup has all three founders:
- someone who understands how to build technologies and systems to solve problems;
- someone who understands the human factors behind those problems, why they exist, what it takes to fix them and how to shape the experience;
- someone who understands how to reach, talk to and sell to the people who's problems are being sold - and keep finding more of them
The ideal startup has two of the three founders, but all three skills are present between them.
I have been looking at "starting something" but realised it is just impossible to have all 3 attributes. I am a proficient developer, struggling designer and hopeless distributor.
