Standard Oil

The company of which the story makes me think far more than apple, tesla, microsoft, facebook and so on. 

Think about a man when America is just the way it was in Lucky Luck. Railroads, gold miners, cowboys, horses... A man who promised himself that he is gonna make 100 thousand dollars. He finds his way to make it through refining and selling oil. He does it and more than he can imagine very quickly. 

I don't care if he went after monopoly or such, his contribution to the history of the united states is undeniable. 

Think about it. After supremr court decided that Standard Oil shoul be divided, it was divided to 33 giant oil company which are still the biggest of their time. There is no other company bigger than Standard Oil in human history.
