That's pretty close to a documentary, actually.  IIRC, the four guys who
started Compaq took their cocktail napkin doodle, left Texas Instruments,
and started their own company.

Somewhere, I have a Compaq coffee cup with a copy of their first-year sales
graph (0-$110,000,000 in 12 months) and a blurb that said something like
"The largest first-year revenues in history" or some such.
