Abstract:

Starting a business today can pose an array of challenges–planning, financial, legal, and licensing among them. But at its core, a company's founders must be dedicated to doing whatever is needed. More than 60 years ago, the commitments of two gentlemen forged a business partnership in Seattle, WA, that merged their engineering expertise with their aspiration to bring something new to the marketplace.
