The author offers insights on successful collaboration and mentoring. He discusses his experience when he worked in a laboratory for his doctoral dissertation and first postdoctoral appointment, wherein a series of collaborations with competitors was needed to jump-start his career. He points out that many scientific careers have been accelerated by effective collaboration, or destroyed when the collaboration goes sour. He explains that the goal of partnership is to address a gap in knowledge or output.
