When you are identifying the best partner, several considerations are made for starting a joint venture. So, it's better to look out for an organization with a similar target market, blended skillset, shared values and a commitment to success for a sustainable joint venture.

Study the size of your business in comparison with your potential partner and how both organization would be benefited. By partnering with a large company, small company might gain expertise and two small companies might see success by merging forces against extensive competition in the market.

Defining Goals While Starting Your Joint Venture

During the process of a joint venture, each company is responsible for the costs, profits and losses associated with it, so business partners should clearly understand their set of responsibilities for making that joint venture successful. And from this stage, one can work on objectives and goals with their business partner that will give tangible results in future.
While defining goals, always consider similar businesses that have gone through joint ventures as well as what results they have achieved through it. After setting your business goals, create key performance indicators that will help you in keeping track on your projects so that you can be prepared with all the possibilities before any problem arises.
Once all your business objectives and goals are set as well as all the business partners are on board, there is a need of developing an ongoing meeting schedule to keep everyone in loop about the joint venture. During the joint venture process, ensure that meetings have a clear purpose and send an agenda beforehand to make each partner be prepared. As everyone might not reside in the same place, each partner must be up-to-date through various videoconferencing tools like Skype.Always discuss with business partner about the future of the joint venture to avoid conflict. It may happen that you decide to ultimately absorb it into the business or your partner's business, rather it's better for a set period to continue it as a joint entity.If you are willing to wind down a joint venture, then work together with your business partner on how to protect confidential information and un-bundle intellectual property.
