A strategic alliance is a collaborative agreement (or several agreements) between two or more firms, which contribute resources to a common endeavor of potentially important competitive consequences, while maintaining their individuality (Gulati, 2001) Monsanto is a relatively new company. While they share the name and the history of a company that was founded in 1901, the Monsanto of today is focused on agriculture and supporting farmers around the world in their mission to feed, clothe and fuel our growing world. They are an agricultural company. Monsanto Company was first incorporated as a subsidiary of Pharmacia in 2000, and then spun off as a separate company in 2002. The fund-raising environment is likely to remain strong for both small and larger cap companies, due to mergers and acquisition (M&A) activity and relatively low interest rates
