CxO Network Event: How to Be a Digital Platform Leader

Welcome to the next event in our CxO Network event series – a virtual gathering for digital transformation leaders and executives!

Digital platforms are upending the traditional paths to business success across industries. From AirBnb to Uber, digital transaction platforms are equaling—and often outstripping—the market capitalization of some of the biggest names in their respective industries. And innovation platforms are creating value in new industries. What is it about platforms that has enabled these businesses to rapidly reach such scale? As importantly, what does it mean to businesses that have not yet embraced digital platform thinking?

Join us for this interactive discussion on March 30th with Professor Dr. Michael Cusumano, Distinguished Professor at MIT and Author of The Business of Platforms, and Susan Daimler, President at Zillow, as they discuss the challenges and opportunities platforms face as they scale and differentiate themselves from the competition.
