In developing the list, Forbes sought people who have either created something with a lasting impact on the world or innovated in a way that transcends their given field.

"The list speaks to a century of entrepreneurial capitalism compiling the doers who have created, disrupted and innovated on a collectively historic scale," Forbes said.

Forbes magazine was founded on September 17, 1917, by BC Forbes, a financial journalist, and his partner Walter Drey.
