Resumo


This paper determines and compares the business models of the largest Internet-based companies which survived the dot-com failure in 2001, with some nascent start-ups in the high technology industry which were created after the burst. Drawing on the framework developed by Mahadevan in 2000, the evolution of business models of the largest companies from 2000 to 2007 is examined before being compared with the business models of the nascent start-ups. The results show that nascent Internet-based start-ups have a more diversified model of revenue acquisition than large companies and that due to the changes in the Digital Economy, market structures definitions provided by Mahadevan have become blurred.
