Platform Economics

Creating connected digital communities throughout Africa
 

Mezzanine is a platform business meaning that its objective is to create digital communities that are connected together as a marketplace. This digital marketplace consists of end-users, beneficiaries and enterprise customers who can interact and transact across the Atom, Knowledge and Bit Economy.

Operating as a platform business gives Mezzanine the model to extract value throughout the ecosystem and network of suppliers, providers, users and beneficiaries. This also supports the elevation of users and beneficiaries to close the many gap challenges we have in Africa.

The characteristics of this platform business model embodied by Mezzanine include:

  • Multi-sided – facilitates demand and supply linkages
  • Direct to consumer – no disintermediation
  • Highly diversified yet differentiated
  • Additive – allowing SMME’s to participate
  • Low user barrier to entry facilitating participation in the economy for all users and enterprises
