Big bets can determine a company's destiny and reshape it's future. Some had to deal with adversity at every turn. Some had to envision a different future to seize new opportunities. All had to make critical decisions when the moment mattered most. This is their story, the story of the dreams they pursued, the troubles they encountered, and the big bets they made.
