BUSINESS INSIGHTS If you are looking to grow your business it may be time to consider a Joint Venture. A joint venture (JV) is a business arrangement in which two or more parties agree to pool their resources for the purpose of accomplishing a specific task. 

The advantage of a joint venture is that your business can develop quicker, reach a wider market and earn more money. You can also 

  • grow without borrowing money or seeking outside investment.
  • access new markets and distribution networks.
  • access additional resources, such as technology and specialist staff.

Setting up a JV offers protection by sharing risks with your venture partners. Additionally the term of the commitment can be as short or as long as the parties or the project require eg task, project or goal.

Before entering into a joint venture agreement, you should seek professional advice to minimise risk. It's important to negotiate the right levels of profit and tax sharing, and the management and liability of a project with your business partners.

APP REVIEW -   Creating visuals for your social media and other online content is a full time job. Sometimes its good to go with something different. Memes are one type of content that always seem to generate great engagement.

Using one of the many free online sites to create your meme is easy. They will have trending photos ready for you to caption or you can upload your own photo. Alternatively there are also created memes ready to go on current hot topics.
