NEW YORK (September 19, 2017) – In celebration of Forbes’ 100th anniversary, Forbes magazine unveiled today its special centennial issue, which highlights essays, lessons and ideas for the next 100 years from the world’s 100 Greatest Living Business Minds (p. 115). The special issue cover is the first-ever artificial intelligence (A.I.) magazine cover that allows readers to interact with the cover subject, Warren Buffett. Buffett is featured holding the only remaining whole copy of the first issue of Forbes magazine from 1917.
In developing the list of the world’s 100 Greatest Living Business Minds, Forbes sought people who have either created something with a lasting impact on the world or innovated in a way that transcends their given field. The list speaks to a century of entrepreneurial capitalism compiling the doers who have created, disrupted and innovated on a collectively historic scale. All honorees were required to actively participate in the project – all essays are original, capturing wisdom from the list-makers themselves.
“Shepherding a brand like Forbes that’s iconic for entrepreneurial capitalism, we thought it important to both salute the last century and look towards the next one,” said Forbesmagazine editor Randall Lane. “In assembling what we believe to be the greatest-ever collection of business essayists and portraits, featuring the 100 greatest living business minds and their lessons for the next 100 years, we think this issue would make our founder B.C. Forbes proud.”
