Imagine sitting at your desk one morning at 9am. You need to find a trusted partner for your business, and you need to get this right. Finding the right partner will accelerate the development of your company and move it to a point from where you can carry out your ambitious projects. Where can you go to find one that you can trust? How do you set the right criteria for this selection? How do you make sure the collaboration goes smoothly and ensure it leads to success?
Finding and choosing new partners is a crucial step in accelerating businesses. Such collaborations can make all the difference to the success of your company in the years to come.
In order to initiate this hunt for the perfect partner, we identify four success factors – OTTS: Opportunity, Terrain, Tools and Success. Identifying these four criteria as words is a start, but making headway on their delivery is the difficult part.
The Opportunity corresponds to the context and complexity of the market. Each of your projects have their own particular requirements and identifying a partner for them, one that perfectly matches their needs, is a challenge.
A potential new partner’s Terrain, or research area is another obstacle course. There may be many companies that are a potential fit, on the face, but deciding between them on a sound evaluatio of their suitability is another matter.
In addition, Partnership Tools on the market do not universally meet the needs of professionals. They are also limited to certain sectors of and provide search filters that are not sufficiently precise.
Finally, it is very hard to assess the success of a collaboration. Tools are not readily available that can determine this question with sufficient reliability, other than in the most obvious cases.
These are the observations that have led us to create Spirlso, the first business PartnerPlace that allows future partners to meet and collaborate around concrete business projects, or to find the partners who will help them better develop their business. By the end of this article, you should be in no doubt that Spirlso will act as your partner when it comes to finding the collaborative business partners you can trust to be efficienct, to carry out your projects safely, to ensure the good conduct of your partnership in general and even financially.
