I have been experimenting getting a JV or partnership together with people with the same interest and ideas. What i have found is actually quite difficult. To name a few things that makes it difficult were: 1. Trust. Even if you know the person quite well or even close friends is still quite hard to start 2. Points of interest. Everyone has different ideas as to how to approach the JV and getting the same ideology is very difficult. 3. Experience. One of the partner or JV must specialize in one area and not common to both. Find a good mixed of ppl with different experiences in the related is essential. Could ppl here that had JV or partnerships previously that was successful please let me know what make it a success?
