Strategic Partnerships: Top 10 factors to getting it right

Join Jens Weitzel,  an enterprise software and technology executive and startup instructor at UCSC Silicon Valley Extension, for a virtual seminar exploring the opportunities and challenges of strategic partnerships as a key component of any go-to-market startup strategy.

We’ll explore 10 critical questions startups need to answer when planning to pursue partnerships with established, and frequently, much larger corporations. Gain insights into critical pitfalls and learn about a recommended course of action for positioning, negotiations, and execution, all with the goal of creating synergistic partner engagements and successful outcomes. Bring your questions!


Also, learn about Jens’s new live-online course, Strategic Partnership Development starting Feb. 1.

This is the first course in a new Silicon Valley Startup series, a joint project with Silicon Valley Ignite.
