About this document
A joint venture is a business relationship where two parties pool their skills and resources for a common goal or business. Of course the businesses agree to share associated profits and risks too. There is a host of reasons for entering into a joint venture, for example: to expand the businesses, to make better use of technical expertise, to develop new products or exploit new markets.
