The Partnership Economy Has Arrived

A new era of enterprise growth is here

Partnerships are a significant source of incremental growth and new revenue streams. While sales and marketing have long been viewed as the primary sources of growth, they are no longer enough to sustain it. Partnerships have emerged as the third and fastest-growing revenue channel for organizations.

Welcome to the PARTNERSHIP ECONOMY.

“We have seen brands double-down on direct sales and marketing investments such as CRM and marketing automation over the past 20 years. With over 75% of world trade flowing indirectly, Forrester believes the third stage of enterprise growth will revolve around paving the last mile to the customer through partners and alliances.”
