Event description
Join us as we talk with Michael Dempsey as we begin to explore the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of strategic alliances.

    Experienced Strategic Alliance / Business Development Executive

About this Event

A fundamental characteristic of many successful companies is their ability to reach the largest target audience by using a diverse set of channel strategies. One of these strategies involves the exploration and development of strategic partnerships. Imagine a world where peanut butter never met jelly or Intel failed to team up with the personal computer. Although useful and interesting as independent products, their value and market reach explodes when partnered together.

Through interactive dialog and real-world stories, Michael explores the power of strategic alliances. It makes no difference if you’re a business of five people headquartered at a kitchen table or a 100-year-old firm reinventing itself. Michael will explain how the right strategic alliance could make the difference between a minor performance spike and sustained, accelerated growth. You will leave with concrete insight and practical tips on how your success can benefit from the right strategic alliance.

This event is part of Bunker Brews, a monthly meetup where the Bunker Labs community, including veterans, military spouses, and civilians, comes together to network with subject matter experts, investors, thought leaders, and more in an environment focused on growth and development.

2. You’re interested in getting involved in the local entrepreneur community.

3. You'd like to learn more about companies being created by veterans in our community
