Uberising Your Business Platform
Platform businesses don't appear overnight, more often they start off as an online store, app or website. Platform business models like Vitality, Uber, Google, Takealot, Superbalist.com and Momentum's Multiply are fast becoming the golden child of the
digital revolution as they create value through exchange between two or more
interdependent groups like consumers and producers.
As platforms disrupt
the older business models, they deliver compelling customer experiences and
offer new forms of innovation and value. Despite the potential for success,
most new platform businesses will fail unless there is a change in mindset and
business approach. Join us as we discuss the critical success factors that help
entrepreneurs and incumbent companies achieve successful platform-based businesses.
