(COOPEration compeTITION) Cooperation between competing companies. In the information field, coopetition means settling on standards and then developing products that compete with each other using those standards.
By using co-opetition to both push and help public school systems operate in different and better ways--and by sharing their lessons with policy advocates--education entrepreneurs can be a powerful force for catalyzing broader change in public education.
For sell-side brokers, executing off-exchange through crossing networks and ATSs eliminates paying exchange fees, allows them to capture part of the spread while still giving price improvement to their customers and furthers co-opetition with exchanges and other brokers through multi-broker efforts launched in 2006, such as LeveL, a new non-quoting ATS, and the BIDS (Block Interest Discovery Service) ATS.
