Why it is important to think about your business model when creating a public space on the internet? And what makes a business model responsible? Waag Futurelab and Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences have been investigating these questions and are developing a responsible business model canvas. In this session, Dr Mathilde Sanders of the University of Utrecht will provide an introduction to the business models of digital public spaces and will present her research on (good) governance in the digital environment. This will be followed by a roundtable discussion with Marco Ferri, the General Manager of TheSyllabus, and Paul Francissen, the founders of Public Roam. Both TheSyllabus and Public Roam are examples of value-led organisations with responsible business models that are contributing to inclusive digital public spaces.
Sounds interesting? In our workshop on day two, we’ll take a deep dive into the newly developed, responsible business model canvas for digital public spaces.
