Saul Klein, founder of Kano Computing

The perfect start-up 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 whose problems are being solved--and keep finding more of them

The ideal start-up has two of the three founders, but all three skills are present between them.
