Researchers and practitioners increasingly recognize the relevance of the complex business environment in which companies develop, produce, and distribute their products and services. This environment is often referred to as business ecosystem. Various types of business ecosystems have been presented and discussed in literature, such as innovation or platform business ecosystems. We conduct a systematic mapping study analyzing 136 papers in order to characterize types of business ecosystems. We provide an overview of 12 business ecosystem types and visualize how they interrelate with each other.
