Online-selling pioneer Amazon.com has utilised three individual business models, by means of which it engages in productive cooperation with its competitors. By harnessing its competitors within its own business operations and by looking strategically at customer value, Amazon.com has managed to raise the size of its current markets and to create entirely new markets both for itself and for its competitors.

Women need not justify their place in the technology industry
"Women are no longer an anomaly in the technology industry, although we speak of them as if they were. We noticed that there were fewer women than men in the technological fields and decided to correct the matter. However, I will venture to claim that the matter does not need to be corrected and as an engineer I trust the figures", states Riina Salmimies, LUT Director of Research and Innovation Services.
