Description:
World Economic Forum claims that we are at the beginning of a Fourth Industrial Revolution (i.e., a new era that builds and extends the impact of digitization in new and unanticipated ways). This wave of digitalization creates numerous opportunities for innovative entrepreneurs. Many new ventures grasp the opportunity introducing disruptive business models to the market. Using an online platform that connects multiple sides of players in a market is one of the most significant one. Examples include Uber in transportation, Airbnb in lodging, Lending Club in consumer credit loan and Kickstarter in new venture investments. Many research issues arise from the emergence of such novel business model.

The goal of this special issue is to bring together different facets of issues surrounding innovation and entrepreneurship in the era of digitization. The relevant issues not only include innovation on products and services but also on process and strategy. Platform strategy and business model innovation are the significant concerns. However, issues are not constrained in the discipline of business and information management. Research on government policies (e.g., taxes or regulations) as well as social and legal concerns arising from new business models due to emerging information technology is also welcome. It is also notable that digital innovation has blurred the national boundary and exerts influences globally.

This special issue welcomes contributions on the following, though not fully inclusive, list of topics:

How do established companies respond to the opportunities and threats arising from the emerging technology in the digital era?

How do new ventures adopting new business models (e.g., multi-sided platforms) compete with each other and what are the key successful factors?

How does platform economy change business competitive landscape?

How do platform players overcome the initial chick-and-egg problem?

How do new businesses in digital era influence regional and national economic development? And, how does a government respond to them via fiscal policy or trade policy?

How do entrepreneurial and innovative activities in digital era challenge government policy of regulation or deregulation?

How do social media embody entrepreneurial opportunities in the digital era and transform people’ social life?

How can successful innovations/entrepreneurship lessons be taught, learned or implemented in the digital era?
