In the beginning of a new year a small tradition for us has been to look back on the previous year and make a summary of our most read blog posts. Despite Easter already knocking on our doors (and the current situation of the world) we wanted to keep the tradition alive. So here are the top 5 blogs of 2019 🌸

Last year we talked about the most known and unknown platform businesses, innovation, advantages of venture design, and SaaS business acquirement.

“To be or not to be – a platform company, that is. Becoming a platform-based business is a tantalizing idea for any company renewing their operations and designing new approaches. But how do two leading companies in the platform economy compare to each other in terms of how they operate? What can we learn from them?”

“Innovation is essential, like it or not, you need to be in the business of innovation.  The most successful businesses transform what they do in order to achieve domination over the decades.

The most successful brands innovate, pivot, and shift in order to keep succeeding year after year after year. They identify strategic opportunities and then focus their efforts on innovating toward those opportunities.”
