Theoretical Research Framework

The objective of this research is to further develop Entrepreneurship and Strategic Management Theory on Value Creation in e-Business, by exploring features of Web 2.0 and it’s underlying value drivers and business models. By looking at Entrepreneurship Research and Strategic Management Research on value creation we can make a framework that is useful for our research. Value creation specifically in e-business is a topic that has not been addressed often. An article of Amit and Zott (Amit 2001) is relevant and it’s findings show four value drivers in e-Business. This research will extent this research by looking at the value drivers in Web 2.0, based on preliminary research. Figure 2. visualizes the position of this research.
