I had a meeting 2 weeks ago with a larger company who are interested in forming either a partnership or merger with my company. The meeting went very well, and I followed up promptly after the meeting thanking those that were involved for there time. I know that arrived in their respective countries just over a week ago. I have not heard back regarding the decision to move forward or not. I am unclear on when or if I should reach out to them. It could be that they are formulating some plan or decisions or an offer who knows. I am trying to keep the anxiousness in check. Thoughts?

I think the closest analogy would be - the same way you're flirting with a girl. Like, if you know she's really interested you call the next day. If she's not then you "play hard to get" and wait the standard 3 days. You have to look at their indicators of interest, whether there's a specific timeframe involved, etc. Either way - it helps to follow up as much as every 1-3 days - you want to get the conclusion to a simple yes or no as soon as possible. Hope that helps!
