Abstract

Collaborative business models are often equated with disruptive commercial
endeavors, epitomised by a handful large global sharing platforms. They
represent a certain archetype of business model, extracting profit from market-mediated peer exchanges. A narrow focus on for-profit models obstructs coming to
terms with the full scope of the collaborative economy phenomena, driven by
purposes and actors beyond commercial market domains. This chapter attempts
to broaden this perspective by reviewing alternative value creation mechanisms and
presents emerging business model archetypes.
