Behind the Markets Podcast: Alex Moazed & Rafi Aviav

Ep. 112

Show from 5/24/19

In this episode of the Behind the Markets podcast host Jeremy Schwartz talks to the Founder and CEO of Applico, a company that helps new and existing businesses build their own platforms. He’ll explain that while a traditional business model creates value through linear supply chain production, a platform business is non-linear and can connect interdependent groups of consumers and producers. Companies like Amazon, Walmart and Microsoft have made the switch—so is this the business model you should consider for your company? 


Alex Moazed, Founder of Applico. He founded Applico in 2009 when he was 20 years old and funded the company with his own credit cards. Alex co-authored the best-selling book, Modern Monopolies, which defines the platform business model dominating the 21st century economy. In his role as CEO, he works directly with Fortune 500 C-suites and boards to help them build or buy their own platform businesses. Alex is a graduate of Babson College, Choate Rosemary Hall and Greenwich Country Day School.
