An initiative by Launchworks & Co

Platforms and their ecosystems are now part of our daily lives. They are redefining the way we work, the way we learn, how we innovate and how we collaborate. As a community of platform leaders, how do we ensure that the full potential of these digital ecosystems is realised for all?

What is Platform Leaders?

Platform Leaders brings together entrepreneurs, policy makers, academics, investors and practitioners to exchange insights and best practices on the future of digital platforms and ecosystems. These communities don’t always talk to each other, yet are collectively building the platform economy. Platform Leaders provides strategic insights into key topics and allow experts to share complementary perspectives to shape the debate so that the potential of digital markets can be unlocked for all.

DESIGNING USER CENTRIC PLATFORMS

The digital platforms we now use on a daily basis make it incredibly easy to find what we are looking for. We can be matched with relevant partners, holiday destinations, applications as well as countless content types, products or services. Platforms have become masters at removing friction in user journeys by designing winning user experiences that balance the needs of all their participants. How do platforms ensure that users have the best possible experience and selection? How can platforms keep friction to a minimum while still offering the right options to its users? When should regulators be concerned about platform design?

SCALING SUSTAINABLE PLATFORMS

Our planet's resources are finite. We urgently need to find sustainable solutions to reuse natural resources and reduce the impact of carbon emissions. A new breed of entrepreneurs and investors are doing just that with scaling circular economy platforms. From reducing food waste, to giving a second life to electronic equipment, clothing etc., this panel explores how multi-sided business models can help build a more sustainable future.
