Platform Thinking: Business Model Design for Internet Businesses

A session at Echelon 2013: Driving Asia's Tech Industry Forward

Tuesday 4th June, 2013

1:30pm to 2:00pm (SMT)

Internet businesses are fundamentally different from offline businesses, and have led to the creation of entirely new business models that never existed in the past. What makes internet businesses so different and how can one leverage this while building an internet business?

Building an internet business is not just about building technology; it’s about building technology that enables users to interact and create value for each other. How do you build technology that powers your business model? How do you create incentives for users to participate? How do you leverage data to solve users’ pain points?

This talk explores the design of internet business models. It boils them down to four fundamental questions that every internet business needs to ask itself. It also presents a methodical framework to move from an idea to a business, while focusing on what’s most important for your startup.
