Requsting data on ground breaking companies vs. second to market having a better track record

I have seen some amazing data showing the market leader is not always the winner.

  • Goolge vs Yahoo
  • trans-atlantic cable (1st one failed and 2nd was sucess)
  • other great examples

SLACK

Will Slack break the rule?  Symphony raised $165 million, but is Slack the market leader.

Or was Slack just making a better dialed in product.  People could have used Google products or texted to each other.

FACEBOOK (vs MySpace)

OTHERS

More to come…..
