About this Event

Understanding how digital platforms work (Up-to-speed briefings)

We bring you up to speed with digital platform business models. What is the essence of a digital platform and when does it make sense from a business perspective? How do you get a platform off the ground? Which type of pricing strategy is appropriate?

In a small-scale executive session of 4 hours, we will discuss:

what makes platforms different from traditional firms;
how platforms make money;
why they tend to grow very fast;
how platforms compete;
why platforms exist.
Join our digital strategists Nicolai van Gorp and Paul de Bijl for a solid basis in business models of digital platforms. Nicolai and Paul are experienced executive teachers (tailor-made programs; executive course at the National Academy for Finance and Economics; Executive MBA in Business & IT at Nyenrode Business University). They work with companies and public organizations to help them develop digital business models.
