What is a Joint Venture?

Joint ventures are a strategic alliance between two or more companies, in which they share resources and expertise to pursue a shared goal. As each partner has their own strengths and weaknesses, combining forces can enable the businesses to offset risks, explore new opportunities and reach new markets more successfully than on their own.

Depending on the type of joint venture, it may involve product development, marketing alliances, outsourcing arrangements or some other form of cooperation between partners. These arrangements can be useful for both big corporations aiming to diversify operations, as well as small businesses seeking a way into new markets.

Although there are certain risks associated with joint ventures, careful selection of partners and meticulous drafting of contracts can help mitigate these and unlock the potential benefits that these collaborations have to offer.

What is a strategic partnership?

Strategic partnerships are formal alliances between two or more businesses with a shared objective. The two companies often have complementary strengths and weaknesses which allows them to take advantage of each other's assets and gain a competitive edge in the industry.

The most common forms of strategic partnerships are equity-based, joint ventures and cooperative agreements. Equity-based arrangements involve an exchange of ownership between two companies, while joint ventures create a whole new entity that the partner companies mutually own. Finally, cooperative agreements enable companies to collaborate without merging or exchanging equity and they generally involve sharing resources or expertise.
