Notes
  • From the limited data above, it would seem food (restaurants, farming, plantations), lodging (hotels, construction) and banks are durable business types.
  • This is orthogonal to durable business models which may include franchising (KFC), concession (utilities), platform (Amazon), design and branding (Apple), de facto standard (Excel).
  • Small businesses that are durable suggest value and/or tradition. Being unincorporated and undocumented, they may not make it to the lists above. Examples include traditional boat making (Terengganu), opera as a service (Peking Opera) and dance performance (Odissi).
  • Modern, large, durable businesses suggest market dominance via momentum, size etc. For example, online public forums went from bulletin boards to web forums (eg. Reddit, Lowyat), Friendster, MySpace and are now paused at Facebook (plus WhatsApp, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn etc).
