Keeping it in the startup community
In the first part of our four-part series, we discussed how buying from other startups can lead to cost-saving benefits.
In this second instalment, we will again hand over to Sam Parry, Founder of Ensemble, to explore how engaging with fellow startups can provide access to cutting-edge solutions, often delivering a competitive advantage. Contributions from Chris Priebe, angel investor & founder/CEO of HR tech platform Zelt.
In the final article in our four-part series, we will pick up where we left off in part three (startups leveraging each other’s networks to drive portfolio sales) and look at how young firms buying from each other creates opportunities for closer collaborations.
