In order to make an entrepreneurial idea become reality you need more than an idea. There are many people who these other skills but don't have the idea. By bringing together these different skills it would be possible to build a more complete team.

Do you really understand the need your start-up is addressing or have you scratched the surface? How do you know it has potential to be successful?
