You get brownie points right off the bat for realizing that you can benefit from experience. In order to persuade someone to sign on and share their experience, you’ll need to meet them, get them to trust you and demonstrate your willingness to listen, learn and make good on your commitments.

There are a million places to meet business partners, but you want the ones most likely to bear fruit, so think from the end forward.

  • Where do you already have trust and credibility that you could parlay into contacts?
  • Do you have hobbies or nonbusiness interests where you have credibility and could ask people for an introduction?

Networking through people you have a relationship with is one of the best ways to find potential partners. Personal introductions carry a certain level of trust, so start searching for introductions to likely partners. Let people close to you know that you’re looking for a partner. Ask for introductions. People are often willing to share their networks when it seems like a “win-win” for everyone involved.

Part of building trust is treating others with respect. So when someone opens his or her card file to introduce you, make sure to follow up with the introducer. Send a thank-you card the next day, preferably handwritten on expensive paper. Then jot a note in your calendar to call back a few weeks later and let your introducer know the results of the contact.

Your personal network is a good source of introductions, but the local business community also has resources to offer. Your local business paper will have a calendar of networking events. Check them out and start searching for your prospective partner. A Chamber of Commerce can be a good place to meet business people, as can specialized networking groups. For example, the Center for Women and Enterprise is a great group in Boston where women can network and find mentors.

If you identify someone specific you’d like as your partner, ask your network for introductions. You would be surprised how often you’re just a couple of introductions away from almost anyone. One entrepreneur wanted to meet one of the richest men in the world to fund his company. It took eight months of nurturing relationships and asking for introductions, but he got the meeting, made the sale and now has a board member so prominent that he can attract virtually anyone else to his venture
