What is a joint venture?
A joint venture is a form of business typically created by two parties, but can involve more than two parties. The venture created is of shared governance, ownership, profits and risks. Reasons two or more parties pursue joint ventures include the gain of efficiencies of scale, sharing of risk of a large investment or new project, and to reach a new customer base.
A joint venture is operationally independent from it's founding owners. If the correct form of entity is chosen, founders do not have liability exposure, except for any initial capital that was invested during formation.

What is a Strategic Alliance?
Strategic Alliances are much like joint ventures. Two or more parties create an agreement with objectives but each party remains separate and independent entities. Each party contributes to the alliance those resources to which each independent entity has access. The goal of a strategic alliance is typically to build the business of one entity using the resources of the other participating entity to achieve mutual benefit in business operations that each entity would not be able to realize independently.
