One may decline a partnership owing to the limitations and the responsibility of shared debt. The question is. Does being a sole proprietorship allude more flexibility and autonomy than a partnership ?. In order to work as a team on the entrepreneurial ship, both parties must be of similar foresight, determination and objective. Although these alliances may accrue unforeseen circumstances and a degree of risks, we can not overlook it’s potential to become successful ventures. The likes of Google, Microsoft, Apple, Hewlett Packard just to name a few have certainly affirmed the hackneyed phrase two heads are better than one. These giants have a common denominator and that is a synergy that engulfs a sense of support and optimism towards their collaboration.
