The busi­ness ecosys­tem is a net­work of com­pa­nies and orga­ni­za­tions that are con­nect­ed and inter­act with one anoth­er in order to sup­port the growth and suc­cess of a par­tic­u­lar busi­ness. The busi­ness ecosys­tem may include sup­pli­ers, cus­tomers, com­peti­tors, reg­u­la­tors, and oth­er stake­hold­ers that have an impact on the busi­ness. The part­ner ecosys­tem live with­in the busi­ness ecosystem.
