The best disruptors are focused on customers, not products, they use technology rather than fear it, they create new opportunities often where regulations don't exist and they are backed by those with deep pockets and an appetite for risk.

    The Businesses that boomed in 2020

    The Businesses that boomed in 2020

    One of the worst years this century did not stop some industries from their best year yet.

    2020 was supposed to be the year that offered the best view of the future, a 2020 view. Turns out it was not such a good view.

    Despite it being one of the worst years of the century some businesses will end the year with it being one of their best.

    Like most disruption, it never affects everyone the same way, changes harm some and benefits others. 

    The global changes that will flow from the pandemic will see some industries struggle to recover while others will never look back, this is a short list of some that were the ones that beat the pandemic by being ready to grow when the market changed.

    The cows are coming to save us

    The cows are coming to save us

    The headline relates to vaccine origins, this is about how close we are to a Covid-19 vaccine.

    The word vaccine comes from the Latin word for cow. Edward Jenner created the first vaccine using the less harmful pox virus that infected cows to infect humans and so allow them to become immune to an infection from the more serious and often deadly human version of smallpox. 

    He did this in a way that would horrify us today. By first infecting a young boy with cowpox he waited for him to develop the infection and then once recovered infected him with smallpox. Thankfully the boy resisted the infection. He did it to 22 more people before publishing the results of his vaccinations. That was in 1798, it would take until 1977 and a significant global effort before the World Health Organisation (WHO) could declare in 1980 that smallpox had been eradicated.
