A Pair of Aces

Why are so many successful tech companies founded by two people?

Bill Gates and Paul Allen
Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak
Larry Page and Sergey Brin

Bill Hewlitt and David Packard

Probably because the ability to:

1. Come up with a good idea for a tech product
2. Raise the money to develop the product
3. Actually make the product
4. Market the product

...rarely resides in a single nerd.

To make a tech company go, you really need a charismatic visionary type to raise money and market your product...and you need a hermitic, insanely focused tech guy to actually make the product. Designing the product seems to require both types.

At least that's my guess.

An online matchmaking service for budding tech billionaires might be a valuable service for countries trying to enter the worldwide tech marketplace:

Shy software genius seeks outgoing type who can raise $10 million with just a smile, a handshake and this doodle I made on a cocktail napkin...
