COLLABORATE TO GROW-Webinar: Finding the right strategic partner can make all the difference for a start-up. You may need a co-creator who owns key technologies to make your product work. Maybe you need R&D muscle. You could gain access to someone else’s distribution network or sales force. You might even find point-of-sale owners who will work closely with you.
Join this free-of-charge Brew Your Own-webinar to learn what the research says about strategic partnerships for start-up companies, to hear what start-up advisors see going well and going wrong and to hear from start-ups who have found strategic partners. This webinar is free of charge, but you must sign up here. (Link will take you to our event-partners, Danish Life Science Cluster.)
