    Tim Bailey (Bio), Alliance-Strategies



    You are planning on building a product, or have already started. You have a strategy and a business plan that says you can do it all and the investors believe you can. Your competitor has the same plan except they are going to use alliances, joint ventures and mergers & acquisitions to get to the market faster, create a complete product offering and promote it worldwide. Who's going to be more successful? In this seminar, you will learn how to accomplish more with less, get to the market faster and build strategic differentiation through alliances, joint ventures and mergers & acquisitions.



    Tim Bailey will discuss the life cycle of a start-up; the types of alliances to consider; the value an alliance can provide; where to look for alliance partners; what types of partners to consider; what makes an alliance, joint venture or acquisition successful; and how to structure an alliance, joint venture or acquisition. Examples will be discussed, but actual negotiations of deals will be covered in another course.
