Partnerships Are Wonderful, Partnerships are Terrible
Partnerships allow entrepreneurs with different talents and strengths to cooperate and achieve more than they ever could separately. Lack of a shared vision and poor communication can lead to infighting, backstabbing, and a toxic work environment for everyone. Failure to properly document the way the partnership actually functions can lead to costly litigation and strife.
The key to a successful partnership is to start with a shared vision, covering areas like:
Exit Goals and Plans;
Partner Duties, Non-Competes, Time Spent, Goals and Metrics, and Compensation;
Adding Additional Partners, and how to handle Withdrawals;
Capitalization and Additional Capital;
Competitive Model and Growth . . .
Consultant-lead meetings can cover difficult ground with less strife;
The goal is a clear set of decisions your attorney can memorialize in accurate partnership documents, not meaningless boilerplate;
Partners must demonstrate commitment to the vision, communicate openly, build consensus, and embrace change.
