Increasingly, business innovators are taking advantage of new technologies to gain a competitive edge and create new business models. Think of technologies like the Internet of Things, 3D printing, drones and artificial intelligence that are already being applied in businesses. Further into the future, imagine how quantum computing, neural interfaces, solid-state batteries and fuel cells might transform the global economy. Many of the innovators applying technology at scale in this way are already billionaires, while others are becoming wealthier as they drive change.
Naturally, billionaire innovators are most common in sectors such as technology, healthcare and even industrials/manufacturing – where technology has powerful applications such as introducing robots to assembly lines – but it’s increasingly being applied in other sectors to varying degrees. A small number of these innovators are “disruptors”. Think of the people pioneering the production of electric cars for the mass market, or extending online retailing into new areas such as groceries. We have taken a multilayered approach to identifying “innovator and disruptor” billionaire-controlled companies that can be applied from the outside in or vice versa. Judged as the factors having the biggest impact on business disruption and innovation, the components we have analyzed are: disruptive business models, essential technologies and proven emerging technologies (see methodology page 41).
