Influential tech entrepreneurs still influence the world around us today.
Entrepreneurs build many of the things that you use and love today, especially in the technology world. Our devices and tech ability have soared ever since the first Apple Mac desktop was released. Many businesses are built on an individual or a team having a solid idea and executing a labor-intensive and time-consuming effort.
Let's take a look at a handful of successful entrepreneurs that we continue to thank today!
Systrom is the co-founder of a little mobile photo social network now known as Instagram. Now, people around the world can make and share photos in meaningful, artistic, newsworthy, and monumental ways, and share them with a global audience – INSTAntly! This continues to positively impact that way that stories are told and how people communicate. A picture is certainly worth a thousand words on this app.
He is not an entrepreneur in the strict sense of the world, but he thinks like one! Berners-Lee is the guy who came up with HTTP, HTML, and WWW – a.k.a. World Wide Web! When he created a proposal for a networked pool of information that could grow and evolve with its users, his boss wrote “vague but exciting” on the cover – now the Internet is one of the most influential models in today's society! It has made the world smaller, the universe bigger, and the possibilities endless.
No one could make a list of successful entrepreneurs without this guy. As the founder of Apple, he revolutionized the way we work and communicate, and influenced almost every device that we own. His forward thinking, simple application, and business values are what influence small businesses – even today.
Yes, his company is not really a “new-age” company that is known for style, design or mobility, but it still governs much of how we do business. But Bill Gates’ greatest achievement will likely be what he has done after his hands-on stint at Microsoft. While specific technologies and companies will become obsolete (Kodak, Sybase and more…), the impact of his foundation around the world will be felt for many generations far beyond Microsoft.
