I would argue that usually only great research institutions and governmental organizations spending public money invent and open up new markets. Think NASA -> SpaceX, graphene, and CRISPR. It is a once in a century occurrence to go from horses to cars or from telegrams to telephones.
I appreciate different perspectives but a lot of people would find this opinion both deeply insulting of their work and not backed up by data from a long list of major technical leaps that occur outside the traditional military-industrial complex. I would suggest doing a bit more reading/research/discussion if this is something you feel strongly about.
