The "Disruption Dilemma"



RAPID ADVANCEMENT OF TECHNOLOGY

The rate of technological disruption has increased exponentially in recent years. Virtually, every industry expects shakeup over the next 5 years. The major cause of disruption is the rapid advancement of technology, which allows new business models to be introduced at an ever-increasing rate and with rapidly declining costs.

AVERAGE LIFESPAN IS SHRINKING

Over the last 50 years, the average lifespan of S&P 500 companies has shrunk from around 60 years to closer to 15 years and trending to 12 years. What this five-times compression of company lives means is that Digital Darwinism will come into play if a business does not move quickly and adopt innovative technologies and new business models.

MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO INNOVATE

Although many companies started Corporate Innovation Initiatives, many realized that it's no longer efficient to rely solely on internal groups to innovate, and are now sourcing solutions from the startup community. However, there are literally thousands of startups out there and filtering the signal from the noise can prove complicated.

How to filter the signal from the noise?



Enterprises are sourcing ideas and solutions from the startup community. However, there are literally more than 75,000 startups across 30+ innovation hubs worldwide.
