The Apple Founder you've never heard of (and he doesn't care you haven't)

Everyone remembers Steve Jobs, a few Steve Woznick, but hardly anyone remembers that Apple had a third founder. 

***

Apple was founded in 1976 by three entrepreneurs: one was a man with a rather sharp business sense named Steve Jobs, the other was a gifted technical man named Steve Woznick, and the third was appended to Apple because the first two were seamstresses at the time. And they needed a responsible adult who understood some business.

Jobs hired Wayne to Apple right at the beginning, but like any startup, Apple also got into trouble early on. They pledged to provide 100 computers to a store, and delivered them late. Since Apple had taken a loan to manufacture the computers and Wayne feared the money would not come, he decided to retire.

Wayne redeemed his remaining ten percent for $1,500 and his flirtation with Apple ended two weeks after it started. How much was that 10% worth at the end of 2018? Glad you asked - about $ 100 billion. Had things been different, Wayne could be rated as one of the 5 richest people in the world today.

Apple was built using the startup system, with people who believed that the way people live could be changed. They took part in the revolution that caused everyone to buy a personal computer at home, and years later, put a smartphone in their pocket. Apple has left computing giants that were 50 to 100 years old for dust, and competitors who haven't moved at its pace have crumbled. In a world where competition in business is challenging, businesses must move quickly and creatively. Like startups.
