What Happens When Disruptors Become Disrupted?
The first wave of disruptors as we know them – think Tesla, Uber, Netflix – have now become the incumbents in their respective industries. As such, younger companies see them as the major competitors and want to disrupt them. So, what can they do about it?

There are some technologies that tend to get all the press and hype. With the plethoric choice of new technological areas cropping up, it can be hard to know which are truly going to be the most important and disruptive forces for your industry. Sometimes, it’s blatantly obvious, such as if you are in the car business and the arrival of autonomous cars and ride sharing apps are all the rage. Other times, there are some technologies that lie low, yet still may have a quantum impact. Such technologies may not be ‘new’ per se but, with the latest advancements in science, are absolutely on the cusp of creating sizeable disruption.
