The Connection Economy

It is clear to me that the new business model evolves on sharing or what is otherwise called "the connection economy". I cite this only because I am wondering: how do you get a competitive advantage in this new connection economy?

The connection economy will find share of mind, share of interest, but not share of space. The connection economy business will seek to find its fan from anywhere the internet ecosystem exists. Call the fan base a clubs, tribes or Googlites or any of the other Dot.com connectors. AirBnB, Uber, Facebook and the list goes on, it is all about connecting.

What is the investment insight here? The business model must be scale-able, pollinate-able, but difficult to copy.

Like and share with ten of your friends.
