Power the future of platforms
February 25, 2021
Through extensive research and provocative thinking, uncover the latest industry trends and success drivers for Software and Platform companies.
In 2011, only two platform companies were in the Top 10 by market cap. By the end of 2020, platforms now dominate the Top 10. Many are worth over $1 trillion in market cap, generating more than $1.5 trillion in annual revenues (2020). Tesla, the latest entrant, and first automotive/energy ‘platform,’ is now knocking on the door of a $1T valuation too.
Platform’s massive concentration of power and scale are remarkable features of their exponential growth. And yet another demonstration of why everyone needs to understand platforms, whether you plan to compete, cooperate or co-opt. They cannot be ignored.
