An arrangement where parties, known as partners, agree to cooperate to advance their mutual interests. The partners may be individuals, businesses, interest-based organizations, schools, governments or combinations. Organizations may partner to increase the likelihood of each achieving their mission and to amplify their exposure. A partnership may result in issuing and holding equity or may be only governed by a contract. Partnership agreements may be formal, written or unwritten and even unspoken (tacit).
