What is Ecosystem Economics™?

Ecosystem Economics™ is the framework which underpins entrepreneurcountry Global and Ariadne Capital’s investment business. At a high level, the companies who organise the business model for their ecosystem win big.

Because of the network-orientation of business and life today, nothing in business is linear anymore. There is a multi-stakeholder network at the core of every business model.  No matter what industry you are in, you are participating in a transaction, not merely buying or selling to another entity.

The individual’s data – whether financial services, health, mobile telecoms – are powering many of the services today. The individual should have an economic upside for the use of their data.

The companies which are reshaping their industries are leveraging consumer data in order to provide better services, and organising the economics for each party in the core transaction of their industry.

These articles explain Ecosystem Economics™ in detail as well as Chapter 4 of Welcome to entrepreneurcountry:
