As a start up company, I’m always very interested in learning from others and doing things better, especially if it involves changing the business model. Disruptive innovation is all around us.
To me, disruption is beautiful. New companies, with entirely new innovations, have been upending industries throughout the history of the industrialized world. Automobiles put an end to the horse and buggy industry and changed the world’s infrastructure forever. Computers gave birth to the information age and eventually put more processing power in people’s pockets than existed in the Apollo 13’s guidance computer. Apple reinvented the way music is purchased and listened to, and changed the entire music industry along the way.
