Forbes’ second annual Global Game Changers list includes 25 “intrepid business leaders” who are “unsatisfied with the status quo” and “transforming their industries and changing the lives of billions of people around the globe.” Ambani, 60, is in the list for his game changing efforts to bring the internet to India’s masses.  
“Oil and gas tycoon entered the country’s telecom market with a bang, offering fast internet at dirt-cheap prices.  
Gained 100 million customers in six months and set off a wave of consolidation in the market,” Forbes said, referring to his company’s 
mobile network operator Reliance Jio.  
It quoted Ambani as saying that “anything and everything that can go digital is going digital. India cannot afford to be left behind.” Forbes said the 25 trailblazers on the list, arranged alphabetically, are re-imagining countless facets of everyday life, from health to sending money to relatives abroad.
