The Internet has always been an inspiration for me as it gives you enough information about most aspiring technology entrepreneurs who have changed the world with the help of their visionary thought and leadership. They craft ideas that have a spark which cannot be seen until they get a success.
The rough idea is often ridiculed, but strong determination helps them prove the effectiveness and practicality of what they have planned and conceived. I am going to share top 3 most influential tech entrepreneurs I like the most.
1. Elon Musk
The entrepreneur who is known for inventing the first ever sports car that is fully electric vehicle i.e. the Tesla Motors. He is also praised to founding the most reliable payment gateway for secure online transactions, i.e. PayPal. The most striking attribute of his personality is coming up with an innovative idea and executing it to success.
Today, he is the CEO of Tesla Motors, co-founder of PayPal, CTO, and CEO of SpaceX. Along with money making ideas, he is also focusing on eco-friendly ideas such as the SolarCity – a company dedicated to solar energy – and Hyperloop which is a concept of bringing up fast speed commute system.
2. Jay Adelson
Being the CEO of Digg, he was listed in top 100 most influential personalities around the world in the year of 2008, whereas becoming a runner-up in 2009.
Before coming into the limelight, he was the co-founder of Equinix where they provided internet exchanges and data centers. In 2010, he founded the SimpleGeo company to help app developers easily add the feature of Geo locations with their company.
He was the CEO there and then serve the company as an advisor after being acquired by Urban Airship. Currently, he is serving as a tech advisor to different companies. His continuous and active contribution in the tech industry entitles him a serial entrepreneur because he never stopped trying innovating ideas and
3. Max Levchin
Max Levchin is one of the co-creators of the famous fin-tech company – the PayPal. He was given the position of CTO and was held responsible for the anti-fraud assignments. After PayPal, he has coined different ideas and pursued them successfully.
One of the worth mentioning projects is Slide which was launched as a simple photo sharing application for social websites but later evolved into the biggest app development project for the most prominent social network Facebook.
Another venture by Max is the Yelp that becomes world famous. The core idea of Yelp was quite distinct at that time as it allows businesses to create profiles and allow their valued customers to rank and review their products and services on a platform where they cannot alter it, which give a trustworthy platform for the end consumers.
