Quickly Check your Platform Business Model Maturity Level and get helpful advise based on best practices of >250 platform ventures ABOUT THE ASSESSMENT PLATFORM ASSESSMENT PERFORM THE ASSESSMENT

Why should I check my platform business model?

Modern platform business models work differently compared to classic, linear businesses like service or product companies. They orchestrate multi-sided ecosystems of users, scale by network effects, have different monetization strategies and are based on digital IT architectures. 

Since >10 years we are building our own platform ventures and helped hundreds of startups, SMEs and bigger corporates to launch and scale platforms. 

Based on that experience we were able to identify best practices and put them into an advanced assessment tool to help founders on their journey to avoid risks and to identify strengths and weaknesses quickly.

Who should use the Quick Assessment?

The Quick-Assessment is an Early Stage tool, helping founders, entrepreneurs and innovation teams to evaluate their platform venture in the stages: 
– Idea / Concept

It helps you to determine the current maturity level, strengths, weaknesses and gives valuable tipps to improve.
