Startups that form partnerships can significantly minimize growing pains and maximize their strengths. A startup with strategic partnerships has greater flexibility to focus on their innovating ideas, inventions, and products―while receiving access to resources needed to build their company. Ideally a partnership brings together two entities with similar strategic goals. In the best partnerships, each partner brings something to the relationship that the other needs.
The NWIRC has invited Ian Bergman, Managing Director, Americas, at Microsoft for Startups to talk about the importance of partnerships for growing startups.
Ian works on a global stage with innovating world-changing startups. To say he loves what he does only hints at his passionate advocacy for startups. He’ll talk about new technology tools for the digital economy and share how startups benefit when they access and use them to build and grow their business.
