Start-ups are cannibalising traditional businesses – from retail to banking. But there is a lot both the sides can learn from one another, the results of a survey found.

Start-ups, of course, have an edge in innovating faster since they are smaller in size and, therefore, more nimble than traditional businesses. They also work in an agile fashion where the software or the product developed is ‘iterated’ – the product, when released the first time, is hardly perfect but is updated and refined multiple times over a period. That marked a significant shift from the traditional mindset where an enterprise only released a perfect product after rigorous testing, a time taking affair.
