Innovation Ecosystem

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts

We are currently experiencing a wave of technological innovation that has proven to possess the power to transform entire industries. The examples are many: Netflix, Uber, Airbnb, Amazon, and many more. No industry seems to be safe. The champions of the last 50 years are challenged by small innovative companies – on their home turf. Netflix, Uber or Airbnb seem like giants now – but they were once startups.

Who can predict which startups will be the ones to transform their industry?

In any case, established companies are challenged to innovate at a much faster pace – and at greater scale. Incremental improvements to existing products and services – while still important – will no longer be enough to keep up with the proliferation of new solutions created by young and aggressive startups who have nothing to lose and no existing business to protect.
