Platforms and Powerplays – Driving growth in the new era

​Platform business models are fast becoming the golden child of the digital revolution.

 As platforms disrupt and dominate markets to create communities of enormous scale, they deliver compelling customer experiences and offer new forms of innovation and value creation. Yet, most new platform businesses will fail unless players acquire a new mindset and business approach. 

Join us as we discuss the critical success factors that help entrepreneurs and incumbent companies achieve successful platform-based businesses.
