Historically new innovation has predominantly come from the start-ups in this space, but often the new innovation has not turned into successful products and hence profitable businesses. The days of throwing money at start-ups and hoping they succeed are long past. Start-ups, their founders, executives, and investors need to take a more strategic approach, ideally before any code is written, but certainly before any significant investment occurs.
