Many of Silicon Valley's most successful start-ups have capitalized on their relationships with strategic partners and investors, taking advantage of key customer relationships and sharing development costs for new products. However, working with a strategic investor for a start-up also has its risks with respect to investment terms and the liquidity event.

How can start-ups and venture capital investors that co-invest with strategic investors better manage their relationships with strategic investors and partners?
