The first S&P index of 90 major U.S. firms was created in the 1920s. Thefirms on that original list stayed there for an average of 65 years. By 1998,the average tenure of a firm on the expanded S&P 500 was 10 years. 21. Like human beings, firms are constantly being born that cannotlive. Others may meetdeath from accident or illness. Stillothers die a natural death, as men die of old age.

Some empirical findings about Innovations More than 90% of all innovations that ultimately becomesuccessful started off in the wrong direction. Given more money and time, firms are known to pursue thewrong strategies for a longer period of time. Most new innovations are started without access to credit ingood times and bad. Most of the great businesses today started without a lot ofVC funding or with any bank lending until 5-6 years afterthey were up and running. Source: Innosight
