Digitale Geschäftsmodelle und asymmetrische Information in der Finanzierung von Unternehmen

  • Thomas WengerEmail author
Part of the Business - Innovation - High Tech book series (BIHT)


Digitale Geschäftsmodelle zeichnen sich oft durch die spezifische Nutzung von proprietären Daten oder Algorithmen aus. Wettbewerbsvorteile von Firmen mit digitalen Geschäftsmodellen sind dann charakterisiert durch Merkmale von erfolgsrelevanter Information und Aspekten von deren Offenlegung − oder bewusst gewählter Intransparenz − die intrinsisch zu asymmetrischer Information führen. Management und Personal der Firma kennen die Erfolgsaussichten und die relevanten Risikofaktoren dann besser als mögliche Kapitalgeber.
