Event Details

RIC Centre is hosting a Lunch & Learn workshop on "Strategic Alliances and Partnerships".

One item that seems to be frequently missed in small and mid-sized business growth strategies is the concept of building your business through alliances, more commonly referred to as “strategic” alliances, and creating a “plan” to make the alliance or partnership actually happen. Strategic alliances have proven to be a very successful way to access new markets, new clients or pursue a new idea, with the main objective being to increase profitability.Some common questions that entrepreneurs may have regarding this include:

  • What is a strategic alliance and who might be involved?
  • Can it benefit my business?
  • What legal document do I need, if any?
  • What are my risks?
  • Where do I start?

It is Louis' goal to use this Lunch&Learn to briefly respond to these questions and hopefully, plant a few seeds about potential strategic alliances for your business.

Date: Monday, June 22, 2015
Time: 12:00pm – 1:30pm
Venue: Xerox Research Centre of Canada (Pake Auditorium) 
Address: 2660 Speakman Drive, Mississauga, ON L5K 2L1
