“Being fustest with the mostest” is the approach that many people consider the entrepreneurial strategy par excellence. To be sure, a good many entrepreneurs have indeed chosen this strategy.

Entrepreneurial judo requires some degree of genuine innovation. Once the toll-gate strategy has attained its objective, the company is “mature.” It can only grow as fast as its end users grow. But it can go down fast. It can become obsolete almost overnight if someone finds a different way of satisfying the same end use.

Until 1929 the cosmetics market was a “specialty market,” a market of the upper middle class.
