During Sunday night’s (Nov. 10) episode of 60 Minutes, journalist Anderson Cooper highlighted the best-selling camera in the world, the GoPro… and it’s CEO Nick Woodman, who’s become the world’s latest billionaire.
The segment tells the story of how the GoPro came to fruition. Being a surfer himself, Woodman wanted to give amateur surfers a tool to make it appear that they were “pros” themselves. Thus, the idea was born. It also tells the story of GoPro’s rise, it’s evolution, and the future.
