Working with your business partner – five things to get right
Tuesday 18th June at 12:30pm
Michael Eisner, the former CEO of Disney, once mused: “It is rare to find a business partner who is selfless. If you are lucky, it happens once in a lifetime.”
The health of your relationship with co-founders and advisors is one of the most critical areas of your business – and also one that is often put down to chance.
How do you identify the perfect business partner and work successfully with him or her? How should your skills and personalities match up? And what happens if it goes horribly wrong?
Successful partnerships share several common ingredients that are crucial in turning your start-up from a great idea that’s poorly executed to one that is profitable and, above all, harmonious.
StartupSmart is holding a FREE webinar to explore the secrets of what makes an excellent business partnership.
We’ll outline the five essential tips to getting it right, as well as explain the tangible difference your partnerships can have on your new business.
The webinar will feature first-hand advice from Andre Eikmeier, co-founder of Vinomofo, who certainly knows a thing or two about forging a successful partnership, having built a business with Justin Dry and Leigh Morgan. Paul Fiumara from DFK will also add his expertise to the webinar, and Gavin Lower, acting editor of StartupSmart, will act as host.
