Successfully operating patent digital platforms in China: A configurational perspective

journal contribution

The increasing value of patents for innovation and the permeability of digital technologies have triggered patent digital platforms (PDPs) as a new business model of patent intermediaries. While current literature mainly focuses upon PDPs within a developed country, China shows unique features with a relatively unmatured patent market. This paper aims to explore conditional configurations that lead to the operational success of PDPs throughout China. The results indicate two configurational paths: “firm size driven” and “digital infrastructure and knowledge assets driven.” Furthermore, environmental factors are peripheral conditions yet important. Our findings have enriched the understanding of patent intermediaries in digital age and sheds light on PDP theory and practice
