Inge Oskam, Bart Bossink, Ard-Pieter de Man
2018 Journal of Cleaner Production  
This paper extends this stream of literature by studying two cases in which we analyze how business modeling and networking interact over time.  ...  Value shaping is particularly relevant for sustainability-oriented innovations, to help clarify all the types of financial, social and environmental value to which a business model may contribute.  ...  Natural Plastics in the Keeper system case said: "We were confounded, we'd developed a really impressive product, but why wasn't it being applied?  ...
