SMAART PITCH #10: The Four Secrets Of Building A Successful Startup Team

Phil Knight founded Nike, Steve Jobs gave birth to Apple and Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook. But were they alone? No. Bill Bowerman created the first Nike Shoe and gave it to Phil Knight to wear.  Steve Wozniak built the Apple I and II computers while Steve Jobs was still trying to figure out how to become 'Steve Jobs'. Dustin Dustin moskovitz, Chris Hughes and Andrew McCollum helped Zuckerberg design the greatest social media site in History ( i.e. Facebook ). Successful entrepreneurship is not a “I” sport. It's a team sport.
