I've read a lot of questions asking about how an MBA can find a technical person to implement their idea, but I haven't seen the other direction.
As a technical person, I know that I can get my idea from concept to execution, and I know how to hire and evaluate other technical people to help me do it. I've read a couple places that really small startups should have only technical people at first. Is this good advice?
What does an MBA type bring to the table early on for a technology-based startup? How does this change if I think we can bring the product to market with little to no outside seed capital? How do I evaluate a potential business partner if I've already started building the technology? What sorts of person should I try to avoid? Any other advice?
