Members in good standing with OD Network can apply to become official OD Network Business Partners. OD Network supports and encourages our members to develop groundbreaking products and services that will advance the OD profession. Partnering with such entrepreneurs supports OD Network’s mission to advance the practice and theory of OD.
Additionally, many OD Network members already have high-quality products and services to offer OD professionals. OD Network can support promotion of these products and services to OD Network members in particular.
The Business Partner must be an OD Network member in good standing and must demonstrate the values of OD Network. The Business Partner’s product or service must benefit the majority of OD Network members. As a Business Partner, materials or publications related to the product or service must be co-branded with the OD Network logo. When OD Network supports new product development through financial or other resources to the entrepreneur, revenues resulting from the partnership are to be shared between Business Partner and OD Network.
OD Network has defined a Business Partner application process to ensure transparency and consistency in developing agreements with various Business Partners. As a first step in this process, please complete the Business Partner application form below. We know it sounds bureaucratic, but completing the form helps us get all of your information together in one place and ensures we are collecting the same information from all applicants. A member of the OD Network Strategic Relationships Committee will contact you to discuss your application and potential terms of an agreement. The Strategic Relationships Committee will recommend candidate OD Network Business Partners to the OD Network Board for final decision.
We hope this process serves as an invitation to OD Network member-entrepreneurs to think about innovative ways you can partner with OD Network to advance the practice and theory of OD.
