You’re Invited to a Preccelerator Workshop: Strategic Partnerships with Jonathan Tavss

Strategic Partnerships: Everything is a Dance. Care to Join?

Strategic partnerships are integral to businesses both big and small. Unfortunately, most partnerships are not created equal and outcomes can be deeply affected when not giving deliberate consideration to who should be teamed up with and why. Consider how the venture should regard partnerships – what they should be looking for in a partnership – and what those partners are actually looking for in return. Put a simpler way: everything is a partnership. What are investors, partners, employees, vendors, and conferences looking for from you? With this understanding, better sourcing, agreements, communication, and outcomes can be had.
