Long Abstract The digital economy, or "e-economy" is witnessing an emergence of novel value chains and entrepreneurial paradigms. Examples include e-marketplaces for the outsourcing of software design, software testing, and other kinds of business process outsourcing, as well as intermediaries for so-called "microwork". A recent report by the infoDev initiative of the World Bank Group is reviewed, that studies the developmental potential of microwork. Case studies of existing global value chains are presented, that integrate sustainable development and ethical principles within their entrepreneurial model. A possible extrapolation to the specific Cambodia's TYPO3 developer community is proposed, and a roadmap for sustainable development is considered.
