Anthony Wood

CEO, Roku

Anthony Wood's sixth venture is named for the word "six" in Japanese. Roku has been bringing digital media to television sets since 2002. Its devices now stream 700-plus channels and vie with Apple TV in sales. In 2012, Roku unveiled a potential game changer: a thumb-drive-like dongle that plugs into smart TVs, eliminating the need for a box.

There are many of these dongles out in the market but they are not gaining consumer adoption because they don't provide a good experience.
