Mike Markkula Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

He was introduced to Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak when they were searching for capital to make the Apple II personal computer they’d developed, after having sold some units of the initial variant of the computer, the Apple I. Along with his guidance and financing, Apple stopped to be a venture and was incorporated as an organization.

He was tempted from retirement by Steve Jobs, who had been referred to him by Regis McKenna and venture capitalist Don Valentine. Valentine—who after gathering the young, unkempt Jobs inquired McKenna, “Why did you send me this renegade from the human race?”—wasn’t interested in financing Apple, but mentioned Jobs’ new business to Markkula. Jobs visited him and convinced Markkula of the marketplace for the Apple II and personal computers generally. As chairman he approved Jef Raskin’s 1979 strategy to begin designing what became the Macintosh, subsequently prevented Occupations from killing the job in favor of his own Lisa. In 1985 Markkula chose John Sculley’s side in a dispute with Jobs, inducing the latter to leave the firm, as well as in 1993 he helped to force Sculley outside. As well as supplying what The New York Times afterwards described as “adult supervision” to the younger Jobs and Wozniak, as a trained engineer Markkula additionally possessed practical abilities. He wrote several early Apple II applications, functioned as a beta tester for Apple hardware and applications, and wrote among the very first three applications readily available for the unsuccessful Apple III. Wozniak was inspired to design the Disk II floppy disk drive system after Markkula discovered a checkbook-balancing software he’d written loaded too slowly from a data cassette.
