Traditional venture capital is no longer a one-size-fits all solution for entrepreneurs, as the boom of eCommerce and direct-to-consumer business models have changed the needs of many of today’s startups. Some startups may have the capital, but lack capabilities like regulation, quality control, and supply chain expertise. Others may have these essential operational pillars but need a trusted partner to help them build their brand and scale their business. Entrepreneurs are seeking new ways to solve the challenges they face in growing their business, and sometimes corporate partnerships are the perfect solution. In this panel three different entrepreneurs share their story of corporate partnership and how partnerships have helped them build and scale their businesses.
