Taking Company Public On The OTCBB, Now It's Time To Get Serious

By James Scott

A public corporation, just as a private company is composed of several contributing factors that dictate the outcome of its success.

If you visualize your corporate entity as the 'hub' of the wheel and each spoke as a 'contributing asset' to the company you'll find that the more spokes in the wheel, the more weight the wheel can carry as its strength rests on scores of unified connections working together, each with one simultaneous point of interest, the hub.

These hub connections can be anything that contributes to the overall success and perpetual, yet controlled, growth strategy of the company such as: a dozen strategic partnerships that act as growing distribution channels for your product or service, finance alliances that take care of your growth capital needs, multiple legal professionals that you can tap into for advise and corporate strategies, dozens of companies within your industry that focus on a different element of the industry but cooperate as a referral source for new business and on and on.

Your goal, in creating a solid, strategically aligned pre public and post public corporation is to keep building spokes and bringing on partners and executives that can instantly contribute to adding more strategic alliances and growth enhancers to your ever evolving and emerging corporate wheel.

If you are a public company, partnerships that you should have heavily represented in your model should be securities attorneys, market makers and broker dealers, several publicists with different areas of media focus, viral publicists, investor relations facilitators and service providers etc. Don't forget the political contacts and padding contacts. By 'padding' I mean contacts that may serve no active role other than having some big names affiliated with your company that can gain attention within and outside your specific industry genre.
