We help accelerate market awareness and acceptance of innovations, new standards, and initiatives by offering alliances a blend of strategic counsel, thought leadership, and operational support services backed by superb people, proven best practices, and best-in-class tools.
Start an Alliance Manage My Alliance
Companies wanting to form a new alliance or business ecosystem have questions. Inventures has answers.
Companies interested in starting a new alliance often ask, "How will the alliance be run?" "What type of entity will it be—LLC? Not-for-profit?" "What type of funding model will it use?" Inventures professionals will work with your team and legal counsel to help structure the right type of entity to support your objectives.
Thought leadership is the foundation of our startup services. We help your founding members set business objectives, forecast required revenues and expenditures, determine alliance structure, and develop member recruitment strategies, all of which are crucial to launching and operating a successful alliance.
Our experience in business ecosystem management services helps ensure that all of the required management-support structures and policies are in place so that the alliance will run smoothly once it launches. We set up bank accounts, establish help desks, develop websites, provide collaboration tools, and more. The first thing we do is assess what phase of the alliance lifecycle you are in, to enable recommendation of appropriate a la carte services.
