FAQ # 7From Merriam Webster online, it says,

1: an agreement, combination, or group (as of companies) formed to undertake an enterprise beyond the resources of any one member

That's pretty much the idea. More specifically, a consortium is often a trade association -- a non-profit membership organization whose members may be for-profit companies.
