Why just a build a company when you can create a whole new category instead? That’s the question that Influitive founder and CEO Mark Organ explored in his packed Founders Forum session at Dreamforce 2013.
Here’s one really good reason: category creators tend to grow revenue 4x faster and grow market cap 6x faster than those companies that enter a category later on.
Based on Mark’s experience building marketing automation category creator Eloqua, what he’s learned so far as Influitive (http://influitive.com) carves out a brand new category – advocate marketing – a little over a decade later, and his observations on why other powerful category creators, including Salesforce.com, Tesla and Keurig, have been so successful, his presentation proposes a whole new framework for category creation.
