OpenChannel Blueprint is a free and collaborative resource that explores the critical ideas behind building and scaling app marketplaces and ecosystems — and answers important questions for a successful launch.

It’s useful when understanding how different aspects of your marketplace, like monetization or app activation, can influence your ecosystem. It tackles these questions at a strategic level, meaning that it focuses on why you may, or may not, want to implement certain aspects, and what the trade-offs may be.
