Companies increasingly establish partnerships through joint ventures, providing capital, assets or other resources.

A consortium is a multiparty joint venture which can be exponentially more difficult to structure.

  • Development and commercialization arrangements with joint venture or consortium partners
  • Funding milestones and decision making with joint venture or consortium partners
  • Governance and conflict resolution arrangements
  • Exit scenarios and exit transition planning

What will you learn:

  • How to structure and negotiate the contributions to the joint venture
  • How to establish development and commercialization arrangements
  • How to agree on funding, governance and conflict resolution
  • How to appropriate plan for an exit from or of the joint venture or consortium
  • How to ensure continuity of the JV business
