Steve Jobs

From garage start-up to multi-billionaire, Jobs was an exuberant self-made Wildcatter.

Best known for his role in creating Apple, Jobs single-handedly renovated the industry.

  • A creative entrepreneur that pioneered the microcomputer revolution and is personally responsible for revolutionizing the personal computer, digital publishing, animated movie, and music industries.
  • Jobs was eventually pushed out of his own company (Apple), which he credits with giving him the opportunity and drive to pursue more diverse ventures.
  • He is the primary or co-inventor of 346 US patents for a range of technologies and designs.
  • Acted as a mentor to the founders of Google, Sergey Brin and Larry Page.
  • Purposely wore the same outfit daily to avoid decision fatigue.

“It’s really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.”

“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”
