World Business Leaders & Influencers Top 100: From Bill Gates to Oprah Winfrey, These Are the Most Powerful Business Leaders in the World

Top 100 most powerful business leaders in the world

Whether you’re a would-be business leader or have spent decades constructing a business. You could be worse-off than to read the short biographies of those who’ve been through the business journey before.

Our business leaders list is an automatic algorithm based on social media influence, Klout scores and a secret recipe. We take into account various metrics from Twitter, Facebook, Wikipedia, Youtube, LinkedIn and Instagram.

The list gets updated each year. If you believe you can arise a creative impulse in people (or you know a business leader who can), you can add yourself by contacting us. All entries are considered by our admins, and RichTopia reserves the right to accept or forbid people from the list as it deems fit.
