Underdog Companies That Became Successful

I don’t know about you, but I love hearing the kind of stories where an underdog in the business world has managed to take on the big wigs in a relentless pursuit for the #1 position and they prevailed through a strong belief and sheer determination.

These great examples give us all hope that we can start your own business and make something truly and wonderfully awesome if we persist. That “it’s not about the size of the dog in the fight it’s the size of the fight in the dog”.

Well this great SlideShare that Firmex sent our way was created to share the stories of those who triumphed through the “David & Goliath” style scenario on their come up to success.

      I’m with you. I love these underground stories too! There is nothing better seeing someone overcome the obstacles placed in front of them by the competitor sitting at the top. I didn’t know that Blockbuster had chance to acquire Netflix. Maybe they should have considered doing that when they had the opportunity to do so.

    Hi Joel,

    Very interesting list and a great example of real hard work. Blockbuster turning down a 50 million offer for NetFlicks has to be their biggest mistake ever!
