Being an entrepreneur, a great business idea must be buzzing inside your head. With the right kind of tactics, you will find the right technology partner as well. No problems there.

But once you find your team, it’s about setting everything in motion. It’s about kickstarting your business and your project.

This is where most entrepreneurs experience a disconnect, as they have a limited understanding of project management. We definitely don’t want you to experience that.

There are some practical problems that you might face while collaborating with your technology or business partner, that can jeopardize the whole project.
