“Today disruptors are not typically seeking to replace incumbents entirely. Rather, they break the links in the customer journey, in doing so better aligning monetisation with value creation and minimising externalities. For example, Airbnb, Inc. (NASDAQ:ABNB) broke the link between staying in residential property and owning it. Airbnb, Inc. (NASDAQ:ABNB) is a specific example of a business model innovation which separated asset use from ownership. This is hardly a novel idea; it’s called renting. Rental models lend themselves to assets which are expensive and durable, and where usage is infrequent.”
