Innovation drives the sustainability of any organization as it is the major contributor behind its growth and success. New startups have transformed the industrial markets to a great extent in recent years. This significantly affects the ‘big fishes in the sea’ as these upstarts have created a market of their own.
How does a startup affect the entire industry?
‘Uber’ is the perfect example of how a startup had a huge impact on the taxi and car rental industry and holds the majority market share at present. Another successful startup story is of Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger – the big brains behind the social media app ‘Instagram’ which currently owns 4.28% market share as per the social media stats worldwide.
The clear message is that no matter how big or small a corporation is, with new startups coming ahead at such a pace, the industry is going to get affected by it.
- ‘Airbnb’ stands as the epitome of how greatly an innovative company can affect the entire industry and its market shares. What started as a small idea of renting air mattresses, soon became a billion-dollar company for Joe Gebbia, Nathan Bleckarczyk, and Brian Chesky. This small startup forced the entire hospitality industry to mitigate their prices to remain in the competition.
- ‘Byju’s’ is a successful online teaching app developed by Byju Raveendran in 2011 that provides world-class comprehensive learning courses for students all across the globe. It also grabbed the attention of some global investors, making it a $ 10.5 billion industry at present.
- One of the greatest employment-oriented online services ‘LinkedIn’ was initially started by Reid Hoffman with just 350 connections on his profile. Currently, it stands as one of the most influential websites for employment services. It was acquired by Microsoft Corporation in 2016 to integrate it with their software enterprise and grow the professional networking site.
