The full cycle start-ups : Previously the purpose of the startups was the creation of the technology and its sale to major market participants. Either the technology or the licenses to use it were sold. As an example, take a look on Apple and Microsoft.

Also some others are in charge of selling the final product. As for Apple, the company itself creates the operating system, designs the hardware and sells the final product. The full start-up cycle is good because it does not require support of the large industry player. That’s why the process of adopting a new technology by the end user is easier and this is considered to be one of best stoks in 2016.
