Driving new growth and value with platform and ecosystem strategies
Europe's leading event on business model transformation
If you don't have a platform strategy, you don't have a strategy
The world's biggest platform economy event
Time for a business model revolution in Europe
As we enter the 4th Industrial Revolution unprecedented threats and opportunities emerge, for all businesses in all sectors.
The world's 6 most valuable companies run platform business models. None are European. 60% of the ‘Unicorn’ billion dollar start-ups are platform businesses. Only a small proportion were born in Europe. Europe’s share of the world’s top 100 public companies is declining in both number and value.
The summit helps leaders define bold new strategies that drive new growth, value and productivity.
