The Age Of Start-Ups & Viral Entrepreneurship
One of the major business and cultural trends of the late 20th Century and first two decades of the 21st Century is the boom in underdog start-ups and widespread entrepreneurship. While an increasingly digitized world has been central to this explosion, especially with the rise of smartphones and affordable technology, it also can’t be denied that shifting market forces have spurred the mainstreaming of start-ups as well. Alongside the influence of technology many of the world’s leading companies started up during periods of or in the aftermath of economic downturn. It’s compelling that disruptive companies can thrive against all odds with a noteworthy number of start-ups founded during recessions becoming more than household names and products we use every day; in fact, they basically eclipse normal businesses. Take Dictionary.com recognizing the prominence of Google (now both a trademark and a verb) to Amazon (now a trademark as well as a river and fable) through to Apple claiming logo trademarks on the shape of the edible fruit. The scope and influence of start-ups as legitimate economic powerhouses reflects just how significant this business space is and speculators are always looking at what’s next.
