Since Henry Chesbrough’s remark on the importance of opening innovation processes to the cooperation
of external entities, like partners, competitors or customers, open innovation gained momentum. Open
innovation approach was started and run by different companies around the world. Meanwhile specific platforms
were developed to support these processes, either by intermediaries aimed at helping companies to shift
to an open innovation approach, or by firms which decided to adopt this approach trough their own created
and managed platforms. Through a descriptive design theory perspective the paper analyzes the features
(components) that these web-based platforms offer in respect to the requirements they have to fulfill in order
to effectively support the open innovation approach.
