- TitleFounder and CEO
Whether you’re skydiving, surfing in the Pacific, or playing with your children in the park, GoPro is the ultimate camera to record the affair. Founder Nick Woodman spent 12 years perfecting his wearable and durable camcorders, culminating in a $427 million IPO in June that valued the company at $3 billion. GoPro’s market cap has since more than tripled, although shares took a 20% hit after a reporter speculated that the injuries endured by Formula One driver Michael Schumacher during a skiing accident were worsened by a head-mounted GoPro camera. The allegation doesn’t seem to have hurt business, though: for the fourth quarter, GoPro expects revenues of $550 million to $580 million, well above average analyst estimates of $503 million. —J.A.
