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.
