10. Michael Dell Spreads His Wings

Michael Dell is one of the most influential CEOs inside any IT company in the world, having a firm grasp of the company he created inside his college dorm room in 1984. Michael Dell is the face, and the name, of Dell Technologies.

In 2021, Michael Dell is spreading his entrepreneurial and social media wings further than ever. In February, Dell formed a new “blank check” acquisition company seeking to raise $575 million through an initial public offering. The new special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), dubbed MSD Acquisition Corp, is aiming to buy private businesses, add-value and expertise, then take it to the public market as a joint partner.

Additionally, Dell invested millions this year to become a strategic partner for the San Antonio Spurs after buying a 10 percent stake in the NBA team. Dell is a Texas-native and one of the state’s most popular business leaders with Dell Technologies being headquarter in Round Rock, Texas.

Michael Dell this year also became much more active on social media, particularly on Twitter. Whether he’s slamming Texas voting legislation as “opposite” of democracy, tweeting about social injustice, or high-fiving fellow IT legends like Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, Dell is now an active participant on social media.
