Strategic partnerships are formed slowly and with careful due diligence. Remember, this is a working relationship based on trust and credibility, and whatever one partner says or does reflects on the other partner. Although both businesses can reap great advantages, they can also experience disastrous business results if the partnership doesn't work. Here is what I look for in a strategic partner:
An experience trail that can be easily assessed
Complimentary products and services
A strong brand image
Excellent client relationships
A healthy business foundation
Easy to get along with
Self-confident but not ego- or power-driven
Good sources of contacts
Serves the same geographic region
Looking to grow and expand
Similar working styles and habits
Similar leadership and management styles
Positive cash flow
Trustworthy and credible
Honest and open
Delivers both entrepreneurial and corporate experiences"

The new employee connection: Social networking behind the firewall
1। Quick access to knowledge, know-how and "know-who." In their profiles, people can list skills, expertise and experience, as well as previous employers and people they know. As with LinkedIn, this helps simplify the job of locating people with the knowledge they need. "It's a way of leapfrogging quickly through several degrees of separation to find out who knows something on a topic that's of importance to you," Shuen says. . And in turn, if they discover something cool, they want to spread the word. "This sense of benchmarking against others in social networking is different from anything we've seen before," Shuen says.

· Almost half of US small businesses will be involved in global trade by 2018. Small businesses will more readily take advantage of the global market place in their businesses.
· Social networks will fuel borderless commerce. Online social networks will mute soft trade barriers, such as languages and cultural differences, and facilitate cross-border trade, particularly among immigrants.
· Globalization will increase small business diversity, particularly those businesses established by immigrant entrepreneurs, will help increase cross border trade and unlock opportunities for all small business owners.
