“There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in his home.” – Ken Olsen, President, Digital Equipment Corp. 1977

It is amazing how some brilliant people and thought leaders get so focused that they miss true opportunities.  This is proof that technical genius is NOT necessary for entrepreneurial success.  Michael Dell is one of the people that brought the computer to the masses and he didn’t complete his degree.  His products were not all invented by his company.

But, he had a solid business model.
