Why did companies like Microsoft, Apple, and Google find success, whilst so many others disappeared? There is no concise answer, but one interesting coincidence is that many of them were started by two or more entrepreneurs working in conjunction with each other. At Microsoft, Bill Gates and Paul Allen complemented each other; Apple had Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak; and we owe Google to the rapport between founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
Is rapport closer in meaning to intimate relationship or mutual understanding?
I think "mutual understanding" is more suitable in this context but my teacher insist on it being "intimate relationship". Can you please answer this and give an explanantion?
