An initiative by Launchworks & Co

Platform Leaders brings together practitioners, academics and policy makers to exchange insights and best practices on the future of digital platforms and ecosystems.

Why Platform Leaders?

Platforms and ecosystems are re-writing the rules of management. New laws, new skills, new management practices are needed. We bring together communities who don’t always talk to each other but in fact, are collectively building the platform economy. Entrepreneurs, policy makers and academics.
