The landscape of entrepreneurship has changed strongly in recent years and a new phenomenon is spreading rapidly, namely transformational entrepreneurship. This emergent phenomenon is linked to the need to implement effective and efficient entrepreneurial behaviors that address global challenges (including unemployment, economic underperformance and societal evolution) (Maas & Jones, 2019). In this vein, entrepreneurial activity continues to evolve due to technological enhancement. In particular, recent developments in technology (Duan et al., 2019; Dwivedi et al., 2019) have led to new forms of entrepreneurship (Nambisan, 2017).

Among the new technologies that have entered the global arena, digital platforms are significant new players (Hu et al., 2016; McIntyre & Srinivasan, 2017; Sutherland et al., 2018). Digital platforms offer a high number of opportunities for entrepreneurs and their ventures (such as inputs for innovation). This rise of multi-sided platforms represent an important venue for value creation, appropriation, and innovation: this is commonly known as platformization (Nambisan et al., 2018; Song, 2019).
