Winner Takes All

Big idea: The Digital Giant Ethos

Today's Startups Are Designed To Be Monopolies On Day One

From day one, startups are designed to dominate markets, overthrow existing Fortune 500's, and emerge as a monopoly.

Sector after sector has become a winner-takes-all — or two-winners-take-all — bloodbath:

Facebook dominated social media
Amazon took over commerce.
Google ruled search.
Netflix won the streaming wars.

Add the global COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, and the gaps between winners and losers not only widened but also accelerated.

Make no mistake: their rise represents a life-or-death challenge for your company—no matter what sector you're in or how long you've held a secure position.

In my new book, "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," I lay out the disruption and opportunity ahead of you and your organization—and how you can embark on a path to not only survive but also thrive in the age of new digital monopolies.

Constellation Research recommends that readers consult a stock professional for their investment guidance. Investors should understand the potential conflicts of interest analysts might face. Constellation does not underwrite or own the securities of the companies the analysts cover. Analysts themselves sometimes own stocks in the companies they cover—either directly or indirectly, such as through employee stock-purchase pools in which they and their colleagues participate. As a general matter, investors should not rely solely on an analyst’s recommendation when deciding whether to buy, hold, or sell a stock. Instead, they should also do their own research—such as reading the prospectus for new companies or for public companies, the quarterly and annual reports filed with the SEC—to confirm whether a particular investment is appropriate for them in light of their individual financial circumstances.
