“The future does not unfold in a straight line, and neither do growing businesses,” explains Chelsi Nakano from Prezi. This couldn’t be more true of our rising startups at TechHub Swansea. Standing testament to this by an instinctive ability to adapt their value proposition; identifying and unlocking emerging and abeyant demand from within the industry.
These inspiring entrepreneurs are best placed to relinquish all opportunities to meet, greet and discover other like minded innovators. They welcome and promote dynamic company cultures, time-saving products, and the tools and platforms we must use to the sustain and scale our regions forefront in the tech ecosystem.
The age old saying, "two heads are better than one" has been around for centuries, and for good reason too! More effective collaboration, more innovations, more flexibility and better results arise when you combine resources in talent, experience, technology and specialism. Sharing and leveraging those resources in turn means that your reach to new markets increases and re-energises the connection you have with your established and prospective customers.
Strategic partnerships can also be a highly effective way to build a business, boost brand awareness, and break into new markets. The success of one business will in turn reap rewards and benefits to its partner brand. A win-win situation! But for a partnership to truly work, it has to focus on a clear objective, and arguably the most important goal - what added value are you giving to the customer?
