Would you like to…

Increase your market share? Strengthen your reputation? Increase your competitiveness and profitability?  Accomplish it all with successful partnerships. Research from IDC proves that Microsoft Partners will become more profitable and grow faster when they specialize and partner with others when their solutions demand skillsets that they do not have in house. According to the channel partners, partnering activities are valuable because they increase:

  • Sales/marketing coverage in current and new geographies
  • Solution-specific expertise
  • Customer-specific knowledge and expertise
  • Industry-specific expertise

Join Per Werngren, Tech Investor, Entrepreneur, Advisor, P2P Evangelist as he introduces you to the P2P Maturity Model through a series of webinars.
