I recently came up with a great idea that can be done manually without any software/design expertise. However, to scale this it will need to become an online platform, which I'm hoping to do sooner than later so I can take to investors.

In the past I have been told to pick cofounders who share your interests and have a specific skill set. My first cofounder is a biz/fundraising profession, I'm biz/sales/marketing and I think the next person should be a techie. 

My question is, does it make more sense to have my co-founder be completely passionate about the industry we are tackling or would someone who is just interested suffice? Does anyone have a contact with food + techies?
