The Way to Partnerships for International Development by Pernille Fischer Boulter, CEO of Kisserup
- How do you establish a partnership and how is the establishment phase different from when the collaboration is up and running?
- Can you partner with a company which is much larger or much smaller than your own company?
- What is the potential for partnerships in the North American market, how do you get started, and how should you relate to other business models which are culturally different from those we know in Greenland?
Come and hear how you can build partnerships and get examples and ideas that you can continue working on.
Pernille Fischer Boulter has worked in over 90 countries and has partnered in almost as many. She has been working on projects in Greenland since 2009.
Kisserup Arctic, in partnership with TLS Resources, has designed and run an incubator scheme with entrepreneurs throughout Greenland for the Ministry of Business and Energy. Kisserup Arctic focuses on Export Through 3 Strategic Steps.
