Digital platform business models: partnership with Ngrane!

Radicand Economics and e-Conomics just set up a cooperation with Ngrane in Amsterdam! Radicand Economics and e-Conomics already cooperate in several projects. For instance, we developed a workshop to translate ideas for new business models into a digital platform and revenue model. Ngrane designs and builds platforms and digital products for business growth (among their customers are Independer, Nike, municipality of Amsterdam and TMG). From now on, we will be carrying out our workshops under the Ngrane brand. This provides customers with the add-on option to go from an idea to a business model, to a working prototype in a 1-2 week design sprint. For more information see the Ngrane blog. (March 12, 2019)

Our activities in the fields of competition policy, regulation and public policy will, as before, be carried out by Radicand Economics.
