What's In The Name?
"The Tornado is a compressed period of hyper-growth that occurs
once in the life of a market, coinciding with the first surge of mass
market adoption of any new technology. It creates a unique set of
marketplace dynamics that frequently will catapult a single company
into a position of overwhelming dominant competitive advantage. The
company becomes the Gorilla, and the dominant competitive advantage
it enjoys will allow it to generate exceptional returns to its
investors for an unusually extended period."
Geoffrey Moore, from his book, The Gorilla Game (1999).
