Traditional Enterprises Need Platform Businesses

Traditional Enterprises Need Platform Businesses

The tech businesses disrupting traditional business are all platforms. Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Alibaba, Google and even Uber and Airbnb - are all 21st century modern monopolies. We believe Silicon Valley shouldn't be the only ones building successful platform businesses.

At Applico, we identify untapped, intrinsic assets that give existing enterprises an enormous advantage to spin-out a new tech company. By working alongside C-suites and Boards as operating partners, Applico helps incumbents build or buy their own platform business and then scale the business until we can replace ourselves with industry-leading innovation, Modern Monopolies.
