Who Is The
Founder of Apple

who is the founder of apple?

Ronald Wayne, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak founded Apple Inc. in 1976 to manufacture small personal computers that Wozniak was initially designing. All the same, both Wayne and Wozniak left the company in its early stages. As such, Wozniak left Apple in 1987 after being under its employment since its inception.

He is however still a shareholder and continues to receive an annual stipend. As for Ronald Wayne, he quit the partnership barely two weeks after it was formed. It has been speculated that this was probably due to the fact that he was older and had more assets than both Wozniak and Jobs.

Consequently, if Apple had gone south, then he would have suffered a greater personal loss than the two young men. So, with two down, Steve Jobs became Appleā€™s man of the moment; after being pushed out of the company in 1985 he returned in 1996 and later became its CEO.

It is worth noting that Jobs did wonders for Apple; during his reign the company rose from near bankruptcy to being credited with such great products as the iPad iMac, iPod, iPhone, and iTunes. Sadly, Steve Jobs passed away on 5th October, 2011 after a long battle with cancer.
