Here is a list of entrepreneurs from iOL Scitech who have changed the way we live today.

Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook; £11bn

Facebook connected 500 million people across the world and inspired a Hollywood film along the way – as well as generating £11bn for its founder – not bad for a college drop-out.

At 27, Mark Zuckerberg is the second-youngest billionaire in the world.

Howard Schultz

Starbucks; £1.5bn

From humble beginnings selling pots and pans, Brooklyn-born Howard Schultz’s notion that coffee should be an experience rather than just a drink revolutionised consumption of the drink across the world.

Daniel Abraham

Slim-fast!; £1bn

As the inventor of this easy form of dieting, the US army veteran from Long Island sold the idea of “a shake for breakfast, a shake for lunch, and a sensible dinner” to the world.
