How Innovation Intermediaries Are Shaping The Technology Market? An Analysis Of Their Business Model

In an era with abundant and widely distributed knowledge across the globe, technology markets became prominent. As technology transactions suffer from several market imperfections, a rapidly increasing number of various innovation intermediaries are facilitating these transactions. The authors analyse how a subset of these intermediaries create value in a two-sided market and how they can capture part of the value. A detailed analysis of the business model of 12 innovation intermediaries clarifies how these organizations improve the effectiveness of technology markets providing benefits for both sides of the market. They also look at managerial trade-offs between the use of intermediaries' services and in-house innovation platforms.
