How so?

  • Forming economies of scale
  • Enhancing competitiveness
  • Dividing risks
  • Setting new standards for technology
  • Entering new markets
  • Overcoming the competition in a market
  • Acquiring new skills and resources

There are huge benefits for companies that co-operate on a project, often exchanging skills that are not for sale. Typically, one partner possesses technological expertise and the ability to keep abreast of rapidly evolving technological developments.  While the other partner may have access to capital, large distribution systems, marketing expertise, service networks and credibility in the marketplace. Each partner therefore provides the other with vital resources and uses the partnership to extend its skill set into new areas.
