The high uncertainty of creating business models demands entrepreneurs to re-evaluate and continuously adapt them. Therefore, incubators offer validation services. However, systematic, and scalable information systems to enable interaction with a crowd of potential customers, investors, or other stakeholders and entrepreneurs do not exist. Our aim is thus(More)
The paper at hand examines if the crowd can offer valuable support in evaluating start-ups. In doing so, we plan to conduct an experiment 1.) to test if the crowd is capable to support experts in evaluating start-ups 2.) to examine how differences in task-representation (i.e. rating scales vs. a crowdfunding mechanism) influences cognitive processing of the(More)
Platforms enable third-parties to develop new software artefacts like applications and become the locus of digital innovation. Prior studies have mainly focused on the benefits that initially motivate external complementors to join an ecosystem. However, little is known about the costs that are associated with this choice and how such costs actually(More)
The emergence of platforms is shifting the locus of digital innovation to ecosystems on which numerous developers create extensions with additional functionalities. Despite all the potential benefits for complementors, however, this new organizing logic of digital innovation also introduced essential new risks. Recent studies in IS focused on risk of IT(More)
The locus of value creation and innovation in the software industry is shifting more and more to platform ecosystems on which numerous developers create extensions with additional functionalities based on the platforms core architecture. While such complementors may strongly profit from platforms, there are considerable costs. Recent studies therefore(More)
Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) providers are increasingly engaged in nurturing vibrant ecosystems of independent software vendors (ISVs) by offering standardized services.

That is why different concepts to early involve customers are being discussed in the literature more often recently. These concepts aim at including customers in the development and testing of new business ideas(More)
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) Anbieter haben großes Interesse daran, durch das Angebot standardisierter Services das Entstehen dynamischer Ökosysteme unabhängiger Softwareanbieter (Independent Software Vendor; ISV) zu fördern. Allerdings neigen Plattform-Ökosysteme oft zu hoher Fluktuation und niedriger Loyalität von ISVs. Eine bislang kaum erforschte(More)
