We will examine myths and realities associated with digital platforms – businesses that connect two or more market sides, and have supply or demand sides driven by network effects. Platform companies are now the most valuable companies in the world and the first trillion-dollar businesses. The talk will focus on how digital platforms differ from conventional product or service businesses, and why some markets produce spectacular winner-take-all-or-most outcomes while others result in spectacular financial losses.
