Business platforms: the new engine of growth for South Africa

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, 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.

  • Rory Moore, Liquid Studio Director and Innovation Lead, Accenture;
