Strategic Joint Venture 

A strategic alliance is an agreement between independent organizations to share resources, knowledge, or other assets. Partners coordinate their actions to pursue mutually beneficial goals while maintaining their autonomy. Each company gains a new business opportunity, be it increasing efficiency, expanding into a new market, capturing more market share, or some other type of growth. A joint venture takes this arrangement a step further, with companies pooling resources to create a separate business entity. Joint ventures are stand-alone enterprises that often share resources with the parent enterprises, and they’re typically more involved and complex than strategic alliances.
