How To Create Winning J/V Partnerships – A Tech With Heart Interview with Linda Fisk
Does this African proverb sound familiar, “If you want to go fast go alone, but if you want to go far, go together?”
In the realm of business, a collaboration between entities, ideas, and resources can often lead to success quicker than one would experience on their own.
There are a variety of ways that businesses can partner together to increase impact:
- Referral partner (refer business to one another, often for a commission)
- Promotional partner (co-promote a product, service, or event that benefits both parties)
- J/V partner (co-create something of value)
Michelle Calloway, founder of the Tech With Heart nonprofit recently interviewed, Linda Fisk, from LeadHERShip Global, on the Tech With Heart Show. She shares her insights about the ingredients that make a successful J/V partnership that all business owners need to know.
A successful business J/V partnership can foster an explosion of creativity and create substantiative change by leveraging combined strengths from each partner that would not otherwise exist alone.
In this interview you will learn:
- Create a partnership that has shared vision
- Build a partnership upon trust, respect, transparency, and familiarity
- Have those tough discussions and set clear expectations
