A joint venture (JV) agreement is executed by a group of people or companies/organizations that want to venture into partnership over a venture or a project. Such an agreement does not affect their respective legal status. A joint venture agreement is legally binding on both parties. It clearly defines the scope of shared effort/disparity/and facilitates ways to share the profits and enterprise operations. The first step is the creation of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the parties involved. After that is done and agreed upon a joint venture agreement is created.


  1. MINIMUM LIABILITY: A joint venture agreement allows a company/organization to work with another company/organizations, while still functioning as an individual legal entity. Thus, it is a minimum liability alternative for any company/organization where 100% FDI has been employed
  2. ACCESS TO NEW MARKETS: A joint venture agreement allows a company/organization to access new markets and resources. It also helps both parties involved to ensure that the risk is shared. It negates the known disadvantages that are usually involved for a company when it operates as a single entity
