@Simone Cicero

- Scaling up companies - business models - ecosystems

- Value is moving from corporate to the ways we interact

- Digital players: B2C marketplaces direct to customers => more connected around customer

- #STANDARIZATION the way we transact

- Personalization, culture, and countries room for transition for digital platforms

@Sangeet Chaudary

- The Internet commoditized the network

- The world is more connected and the cost of transactions is lower

- Digital platforms transform business, they no exist as they born => new value arise

- Business as a stack of value, no as an integrated supply chain => Ecosystem
