Reed Hastings

Founder and CEO, Netflix

With more than 40 million subscribers worldwide, generous buzz around original content like Orange is the New Black and House of Cards, and a rocketing stock price, Reed Hastings's Netflix has grabbed the ring of startup royalty. Hastings has credited his challenging time in the Peace Corps (which he entered after dropping out of the Marines) with his easy entry into entrepreneurship.

The Netflix brand for TV shows is really all about binge viewing. The ability to get hooked and watch episode after episode.
