Disruptive innovation via the “adjacent possible,” no matter the industry…..

After an earlier LinkedIn post on startup Lufa Farms Inc. ( http://lufa.com/en/), I saw this http://freightfarms.com/.

Disruption happens everywhere…think of the impact this could have on agriculture, on retail (grocers, restaurants, CPG, et al) and their traditional channels, supply/demand chains, transportation logistics…..and IT systems and processes.

Is there an existing G2500 company in a related industry doing innovation mapping to see how they could benefit from the success of these firms? The oppty could be enormous, think of car rental industry, Zipcar or its “adjacent possible” innovation (e.g. RelayRides).
