Elizabeth Holmes & Theranos

For years, Elizabeth Holmes was lauded as a pioneer in the medical technology industry after having invented a device that could run countless tests on a single drop of blood. With lucrative deals and multiple funding rounds, she managed to claw her way to the top, becoming the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire with a staggering net worth of 4.5 billion dollars. But in 2015, these all came crumbling down, when an exposé published by The Wall Street Journal revealed that everything that Elizabeth claimed to have built was nothing but a giant and dangerous lie.
