Maserati is proud to partner with The Sunday Times to recognize one hundred game-changing entrepreneurs who are disrupting the business world. The Maserati 100 is now its third year, and is dedicated to celebrating the positive impact entrepreneurs have on the economy and society as a whole.
Maserati was founded over 100 years ago by the Maserati brothers who were entrepreneurs, and disruptors of their time. With humble, pioneering beginnings as a motorsport works, the family made a ground-breaking move in 1926 by acquiring Diatto’s racing materials including chassis, gearboxes and other components to create the very first Maserati car, the Tipo 26. The car quickly made its name on the Italian motor racing scene resulting in the brothers working non-stop to meet demand, producing a total of 43 Tipo 26 race cars.
Nurturing the entrepreneurial spirit is something that Maserati’s founders, Alfieri Maserati and his brothers were passionate supporters of, and we are proud to continue today with 2017’s Maserati 100 list.
