1. Ingvar Kamprad, Ikea
Invar was born in Sweden and at the mere age of five, he had commenced his entrepreneurial experiments. He started selling matches at a very low cost to his neighbors still made fat profits. This boosted his confidence and by the age of 10 he began selling fish, Christmas tree decorations, seeds, pens and pencils.
You will be surprised to know that he was dyslexic. Despite his disability, he did fairly well in studies and was rewarded by his father. With that little sum, he began IKEA, a furniture store, which is now a multinational group of companies that designs and sells ready-to-assemble furniture, appliances and home accessories. In 2014, its revenue was reported a whopping 29 billion euros.
