Introducing Collaborator Academy by Openfor.co

Updated: Sep 10, 2022


The majority of startups don’t have any partnership program, even though 1 in 3 of revenue can come from partnerships. It's just like not having a website in the 2000s! In today’s world, partnerships are the same. It’s just like leaving money on the table.

However, getting results quickly from partnerships can be difficult. That’s why you need to set up a partner program that helps your audience with easy collaborations and step-by-step guidelines with an efficient partner-onboarding process.


You can also achieve that on your own, but it generally takes longer to get some results out of partnerships and monetize. Our platform helps you to turn your audience into collaborators and monetize it with our built-in revenue share model.


With us, even startups who don’t even have revenue yet can start generating revenue while attracting investors, partners, and customers! If you want to learn about partnerships, check our blog on Why Partnership is important for Growth?. We have the complete partnership development solution to help startups to grow faster.

  • We have a platform membership for ongoing support and revenue share,

  • We have a collab marketplace for getting found and discovering other partner programs from all around the world.

  • And we have the collaborator academy to teach how to leverage collaborations to grow your business.


In this article, we are going to further discuss the common partnership challenges and myths and how our platform and our Collaborator Academy can help!


Here is the topic that we will cover in this blog

1. Mistakes and Myths about Partnership

What people generally confuse about partnerships is that it's only necessary after the growth stage. Actually, it is not so true. You can utilize partnerships from the very early stages. Your co-founder, your investor, your early adopter customer, or even the startup accelerator program that you joined are your partners as well.

“With us even startups who don’t even have revenue yet can start generating revenue while attracting investors, partners, and customers!”

2. Common Partnership Development Challenges

Even though you validated your business, and even have secured Venture Capital funding, there are still many challenges in building and maintaining partnerships. Some of them include:

  1. Credentialism especially from larger enterprises

  2. Getting traction and a feedback loop is not easy and inconsistent

  3. Sustaining a business development deal flow

  4. Identifying, evaluating, and catching opportunities rapidly

  5. Getting meaningful introductions continuously

  6. Turning introductions and opportunities into collaboration rapidly

  7. Monetization partnerships rapidly

  8. Building long-term feasible partner relationships


That's why OpenFor.Collaborator Academy is here to help to learn “how to overcome these challenges” with our well-designed curriculum, hands-on workshops, guest expert support, community support, and many more benefits with a year-long platform membership attached.
