Business partner - joint venture

Hi... been here quite a while but just been silent reading all the useful stuffs here but now i've got a reason to post something

I and a swiss partner of mine is starting up a business involving outsourcing. Strategically its profitable and a bigger share of the market pie is still for the taking. I have done market study which i can send over for review. The business is on its registrations process, branding and other marketing stuff are also nearly done. We are actually ready to rock and roll by latest end of september - BUT we are still looking for a suitable partner to complete our team. We are in need of someone who

  • independent and looking for owning a business and not a career as an employee
  • would like to invest min 5 digits but can start with 4
  • sales experience or into sales is also a profile we are looking at
  • language is not that important although knowledge of german french or italian is good
If anyone is interested, I can send the business proposal over but would prefer to have a quick chat before doing so.



Anyone who is looking at venturing up with minimum risk but profitable state with big roi - this is something that you should check out. Looking forward to replies



Cheers!
wbsch

Why would an investor need sales experience??

You're either looking for an investor with money, or an investor with time i.e an employee in which case you will need to pay him or reward him with a share of the company.

I'll let you know where I'm at...

Hi Love doctor,

thanks for note! i forgot to mention that we are looking for a partner who knows how to do sales - because the business will be run first by us - that's part of the minimum risk - of course later on (my timeline is 6-9 months) we can hire a sales person to do it. This business is b2b and not b2c - fyi.

Thanks, look forward to know your stand.

Since at the moment we are only 2-3 in the board of dir. the 3rd or 4th one will of course have equal share and will be an owner of the company or just an investor - depending on how you want to partner up. since we are not really after cash investment - but more on a partner who can work with us together - the prospect of having a partner rather than just a financial investor is more appealing.

Hi,

"Outsourcing" at present has grown and is now a mature Industry by itself.

I will be very interested in learning more about the business model and target customer and geographies and the area of work which will be targeted for outsourcing.

Hi bigblue2. i think that's putting it a bit negative. Business is about sales and marketing - doesn't really matter in which area you are involve in or whatever position you are in - 90% it is only about marketing and selling. The partner we are looking at is not just doing sales. He can specialize in another field. But on the start up he will have to be involved in sales just like all of us in the group. The partner who we will take on board will share the same percent of profit as with the rest of the board, same voting rights and ownership as with the rest of the group. There is equality and fairness plus an opportunity to expand on their specialized field - as the venture we are looking at holds a lot of possibility. I hope that clarifies your query.
