Q3 2014 Strategic Alliance Magazine Preview: Unlocking the Benefits of Altruistic Alliances

Posted By Rebekah L. Fraser, Wednesday, August 20, 2014

The Q3 2014 issue of Strategic Alliance Magazine, coming this month to ASAP members and subscribers, takes an in-depth look at alliances, consortia, and other collaborative relationships among for-profit, nonprofit, and public sector entities. Our cover story on altruistic alliances takes an in-depth look at how biopharma companies (and alliance executives) derive numerous benefits from partnerships with nonprofits. We interview ASAP members and alliance executives such as Jeremy Ahouse, alliance management director for Novartis Institutes of Biomedical Research’s strategic alliances department, who says, “Close collaborations allow us to cultivate alternative viewpoints, which, in turn, keeps us open to possibilities.”


In this and other articles from the Q3 2014 SAM, we explore how consortia and other collaborations are popping up everywhere to solve the problems emerging as a result of climate change and other major disruptions, including exponential population growth, increasing global demand for energy, political and social unrest, epidemics, famine, and natural disasters.


Indeed, local-level collaborations have the potential to make as deep and broad an impact as global consortia. Green Launching Pad seeks to harvest New Hampshire, USA’s entrepreneurial talent to bring eco-friendly technologies, products and services to market. Innovations like SustainX’s compressed-air energy storage technology may be the answer to the global conundrum of storing solar and wind energy. Even if Holase’s low-cost, user friendly, self-contained solar powered LED traffic lights, and LDI’s environmentally friendly medical supplies for hospitals are sold only in New Hampshire, the technologies and products can be replicated by companies across the world. What kind of local alliance could your organization form that may have global applications and benefits?


Organizations using high-tech manufacturing tools are collaborating with governments and nonprofits to bring peace to the planet, indirectly. Mineral mining operations throughout Africa have sparked violent conflicts. The Public-Private Alliance for Responsible Minerals Trade is a multi-sector, multi-party alliance designed to “support supply chain solutions to conflict minerals challenges in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the Great Lakes Region (GLR) of Central Africa.” Participants include corporate giants from the software, pharmaceutical, auto, aerospace, telecom, jewelry, and electronics industries.


How will you and your organization harness the power of partnership not only for profit, but also for a better planet? We hope you find this latest issue of Strategic Alliance Magazine informative, though-provoking, even inspiring.
