Technology companies considering an exit cannot ignore the disruptive technologies changing lives and transforming markets. Even the largest firms must adapt to these trends or fall behind. No company has the foresight to always lead the innovation curve, so the most successful acquire the pioneering companies with the expertise to help them continue that disruptive success.
