How to grow your business through partnering with others

Entrepreneurs who are succeeding are in partnerships.

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Accelerator

You will work harder in a partnership than you will ever work on your own.

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Accelerator

Brexit has created a major opportunity for South African businesses to partner with UK businesses due to the duty free nature of South African exports into the European Union.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Aurik Business Accelerator CEO Pavlo Phitidis for his weekly small business feature.

Phitidis discussed three sessions he had this past week between business partners (solving and troubleshooting the relationship between them to the intended ambitions of the business).

He also discussed the following:

  • How to build your business on the back of a partnership.

  • Why it will grow quicker than it would if you go it alone.

  • How to escape group think in that partnership.

  • How to date before marrying (finding and locking down the partnership).

It’s not about liking the other person.

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Accelerator

You have to trust that person. Trust is a non-negotiable.

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Accelerator

You need diversity.

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Accelerator

You need to be aligned around values.
