Hosted by MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy

We are pleased to announce a workshop on platform-centered economics and management, which will take place on Friday, July 15, 2016. This event will gather a global community of executives to explore the economics and management of platform-centered markets and discuss their implications for managers, industry and governmental policy.

Platform business models are rapidly reshaping the structures and conditions of industries such as media, energy, telecommunications, social networking, publishing, academia, gaming and retail. Organizations are finding their current business models to be insufficient or ineffective for addressing the challenges and behavior of platform-based markets.

This full-day workshop will give executives the opportunity to interact with other executives who are facing the same strategic challenges of launching, growing, and defending businesses in a network world.
