I was thinking to myself about companies in the past, like Microsoft and Apple, who originally had built themselves on one product and only one product, and how their future success has depended almost exclusively on the diversification of their business into separate divisions selling products outside of their original concept (i.e. Microsoft Office, iPad, iPhone, Surface RT, SkyDrive, etc.).
It occurred to me that the best way for Soylent to grow as a corporation is to diversify its business, if it is, in fact, successful. I was wondering what @rob and @JulioMiles opinion might be on this.
I think Soylent should invest in creating nutritionally complete foods other than just Soylent if the company meets success with it’s flagship product.
This way, it will appeal to a larger consumer base while still differentiating itself from other nutritional supplement companies. Some proceeds can be put towards fighting world hunger (most corporations have a philanthropy division), and all of a sudden, we have a company that is meeting it’s original goals, though in a different way than originally intended.
What are your thoughts on this?
