e-coopetition
Explanation:
Exactly the same word!

"e-coopetition" is a relatively new term, used to suggest that "businesses can gain advantage by means of a judicious mixture of competition and cooperation. Cooperation with suppliers, customers and firms producing complementary or related products can lead to expansion of the market and the formation of new business relationships, perhaps even the creation of new forms of enterprise."
