    P4F #12 / SE2 with Matthias Naab & Marcus Trapp of Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering

    How can we make the Mittelstand and the SMEs competitive in the industry of platforms?
    Our new guests are coming from the largest research organization in Europe - Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering.
    The main task of the Fraunhofer organization is to keep the German and European industry competitive or make them competitive.
    Common thinking is that platform and ecosystem economy is for digital giants or startups, but our guests Marcus Trapp and Matthias Naab together with us disagree with this statement. SMEs have a lot of assets to leverage and therefore platform and ecosystem economy should be a “sweet spot” in their development path.

    The main problem lies within current thinking that building a platform requires a full transformation of the business model. But this is not true. A better way is a portfolio perspective where multiple business models should co-exists and a large portion is dedicated to transactional revenues.

    Marcus and Matthias have given a very broad overview of the industry, its struggles and opportunities. Their advice to SMEs is the following: “In order to achieve great things in the area you are currently working in, sometimes you need to look around and maybe have a look at the completely different business domain with the skill set that your company and your employees already have.”

    We are sure that you will be very interested to hear more valuable advices from our guests!
    Tune in and enjoy our thrilling Podcast about the latest possibilities in the platform economy.

    P4F #11 / SE2 with Tilmar Wilhelm Goos, Blockchain Expert

    Web 3, Blockchain, Crypto, Decentralized Finance are currently the most discussed topics in the business world. To get some more understanding we have invited as guest of this Episode a specialist in this field - Tilmar Wilhelm Goos, Swiss based international tax and business specialist, speaker at conferences and universities an author of the book “Banking Bitcoins Taxation — The handbook of international money management and digital assets”.

    Nowadays, in Web 2, everything is client oriented, banking does the job for you. With a shift to Web 3 and decentralized finances, means a transfer of responsibility to the individual or company itself. Decentralized Finance provides the infrastructure to participate and act on your own. But there is still a big gap between generations that has to be filled in.

    Tilmar has shared with us his leadership advice: “Get involved. Play around within the technology, get a feeling of how this all works. Don’t trust, verify.”

    P4F #08 / SE2 with Leo Michellier & Paul Beguerie, Digital Product Owner + Project Manager of Organix by SUEZ

    A great example of how #platforms can support #circulareconomy : Organix by Suez is a #marketplace which connects producers of organic waste (farmers, food industry manufacturers, ports, municipalities…) with biogas plants, which transform them into energy.
    They combine two challenges: #wastemanagement and the production of local and #renewableenergy, with a huge market opportunity as almost 4 million tons of food industry biowaste is produced each year in France.

    In this episode, we interviewed Leo Michellier, Digital Product Owner and Paul Beguerie, Project Manager. They will tell you more about what Organix does, how they went against the cliché of being all digital by adding a human layer to improve the customer journey and why they are unique.
