New Delhi: Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani has topped a Forbes list of 'Global Game Changers' who are transforming their industries and changing the lives of billions of people around the globe.
Ambani, 60, comes at the top of the list for his game changing efforts to bring the internet to India's masses.
"Oil and gas tycoon entered the country's telecom market with a bang, offering fast internet at dirt-cheap prices.
Gained 100 million customers in six months and set off a wave of consolidation in the market," a PTI report quoted Forbes as saying, referring to the mobile network operator Reliance Jio.
Forbes said the 25 trailblazers on the list are re-imagining countless facets of everyday life, from health to sending money to relatives abroad. "While plenty of corporate functionaries make headlines for successful turnarounds or record profits, we sought to identify true movers and shakers who are determining the course of the future for more than just their own shareholders or employees," it said.
The list includes founder of home appliances company Dyson, James Dyson, American global investment management corporation BlackRock cofounder Larry Fink, Deputy Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman, social media company Snap cofounder Evan Spiegel, Chinese ride sharing giant Didi Chuxing founder Cheng Wei and African retail tycoon Christo Wiese, PTI reported.
