Virtuous Cycle: The Core Growth Model For Platforms

The virtuous cycle is a positive loop or a set of positive loops that trigger a non-linear growth. Indeed, in the context of digital platforms, virtuous cycles – also defined as flywheel models – help companies capture more market shares by accelerating growth. The classic example is Amazon‘s lower prices driving more consumers, driving more sellers, thus improving variety and convenience, thus accelerating growth.
