Partial Content from the Introduction: If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Two heads are better than one. United we stand. If you are a business owner who wants to significantly increase market reach, break down barriers to entry in your market, or simply generate skyrocketing revenues in a shorter amount of time, these old adages are becoming more and more relevant. If you are an aspiring joint venturer who needs to acquire some key knowledge before making the decision to jump into this new world, or if you have already made the decision to start a joint venture but don't know where to begin, this "How-To" handbook is for you.
