Business model experimentations in advancing B2B sharing economy research

Abstract

The sharing economy has potential to be the solution to the urgent
need to use materials and resources more efficiently. In the consumer business
sector, several successful business models on sharing exist, while industry is
lagging behind in development. In order to innovate novel business models for
sharing in the B2B context, we need to develop a methodology for testing the
ideas flexibly and cost-efficiently. In addition to companies, testing ideas can
offer great value for research organizations exploring this phenomenon. In this
paper, we present a business model experimentation method focusing on the
research organization’s perspective on how to design and implement a business
model experimentation. In addition, we provide valuable insights for
companies aiming to test their sharing economy business model. Our study is a
case study on sharing a 3D printer.
