Which entrepreneur or business person, from the past or present, inspires you the most?
Jef Lippiatt Owner at Startup Chucktown
It would be too challenging for me to pick just one so here is my list:
- Jim Henson (Muppets, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, etc.)
- Walt Disney (7 plane camera, theme parks, cartoons and movies)
- Dr. Seuss (political cartoons, advertisements, children's books, animated shorts)
- Chuck Jones (Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote, Pepe le Pew, Marvin Martian, animated Tom & Jerry and helped animated Dr. Seuss shorts)
- Tex Avery (Bugs Bunny, Daffy Ducky, Porky Pig and Droopy)
Going a bit further back
- Benjamin Franklin
Leonardo Da Vinci
I know it is quite a weird mix of people, and many of their were illustrators / animators. However, I feel like the best way to create the future is to spend time in the unknown (imagination) and those people had it in spades.
