Nobody wants to be your technical co-founder. That’s the truth.

Agreed with most of your points of view, though a succesful product/solution is not solely reliant on a coder. Any business needs a balance of left and right brained individuals. An idea means nothing, but nor does any product for that matter..unless a “Popstar”, in the form of a brilliant marketer/salesman or storyteller, is able to attract the herds of customers required to make the product/business a success. I have seen too many coders taking their otherwise great products to the grave because they personally lack the personality, business acumen or story-telling talents (marketing/selling) required to onboard customers.
