Mixed Companies


They are those companies whose capital comes from both private investors and the State, generally most of the investment comes from the public fund, without diminishing the importance of private capital, in these cases the objectives of joint ventures are focused on interest public, the economic activities carried out by these companies are very varied, ranging from commercial to industrial.

Usually, the creation of this type of business partnership is motivated by the search to improve the performance that the State may have in a certain task, this through the good management of trained private personnel, avoiding government bureaucratic obstacles, in addition to the exchange of knowledge. and resources, without leaving aside the risks and debts acquired by said company, these companies are of great importance since they can become the door to new national and international markets, which due to the high cost that a small company requires it would have no opportunity to compete in such markets. The duration of these companies is indefinite, since the objectives they set are usually not so easy to achieve.

One of the most common ways of creating joint ventures is through temporary unions of companies, as their name indicates they are created for the achievement of a particular objective and after that they are dissolved. Corporate business alliances are also another of the resources used, this consists of the union between two companies, in order to create a third company without harming the two base companies. The business merger, on the other hand, is the union between two companies from which a single base company will generate.

The fact that a person is involved in an alliance of this type does not mean that they should put aside their other businesses or labor obligations, since the joint venture will only represent one more business, in this case with a partner, where they must share the responsibilities that this entails.

The joint venture represents a great opportunity for those medium and small companies that require a large investment of capital to offer new products and enter new markets, which makes them more competitive compared to other larger companies.
