What do Google, The Beatles and Aeroplanes all have in common?
Larry Page and Sergey Brin met as students; they started a company as a way to experiment with search algorithms later becoming Google. The Wright Brothers started out fixing bikes; it was their invention of the three-axis controls that made flying a fixed-wing aircraft possible. John Lennon and Paul McCartney were the driving force behind the sound that changed pop music forever.
The common factor? Simple partnerships, with a mutual passion, sparking ideas that went on to change the world. Collaborating with others enables us to share ideas, be inspired and potentially do some revolutionary work.
