Just a general question:

What would attribute to making a successful team? Encourage collaboration among partners? More intense training sessions? Finding sponsors? Doing a lot of research and finding resources for team members?

I'm just curious what works and what doesn't for some past teams.

Yes to all of those things! Just one more in addition - try and find a professional or professor related to your event to help mentor you. It makes a HUGE difference.
