Platforms are an integral part of the digital economy. They enable entrepreneurs to focus on what they do best without become part-time designer or advertiser. As crucial parts of the startup ecosystem, it is important that questions of transparency, redress and fairness do not come at the expense of startups and internet consumers. Startups need a seat at the policy table to avoid unintended consequences that could reduce diversity and quality for consumers, and increase compliance costs for platforms.
