and thus to build an idea business in their own environment.
The partner program allows Markus to generate revenues to pursue the purpose on the enterprise level. E.g. to increase R&D funding, training, network building, branding etc. By expanding the number of BrainStores, the brand can grow. More entrepreneurs within the network means more capacities for large projects. More countries means higher international attractiveness of the network. Partners can involve other partners as team members or facilitators to delight customers. Partners can be customers of partners.
A typical partner has an entrepreneurial spirit, likes human beings, is interested in many topics, likes language (producing ideas has a lot to do with verbalizing thoughts). A partner can have other activities and jobs - it is however recommended to invest a day a week or more. Only partners can take the role of champs and take outside customer responsibility on behalf of BrainStore.
The partner program is kept as simple as possible, knowing that lawyers and legal work tends to draw energy from the focus on delighting customers. The partner program has many common points with good relationships. Both sides need to make an effort to make it happen. Both sides are free to end the relationship in a simple form at any time.
The partnership is granted based on the Pay-What-You-Wish principle. Every month, the partner sets the price for being part of the partner program. The partner can set any price.
