Abstract

As platforms are seen as the novel winning business logic, it is considered that they require new sets of competences from organizations as well as individuals. In this paper, the platform competences based on platform literature are presented with four elements-data, digitalization, service and ecosystems. These are explored in the context of 16 digi-driven startups, with their representatives assessing their own competences and stating the future roadmap for improving these. The findings validate that all of the four elements are both needed at the start-ups. They had a positive outlook on their competences: the highest score was given for digitalization, while data got the lowest score, though the differences were not strong. The start-ups were planning to address the competence growing with learning, with partnerships and with hiring.
