Dubbed the “agent of disruption” by Forbes, Sean Parker has undoubtedly fuelled some of the most disruptive companies of the last decade. After altering the music industry forever with music-sharing site Napster he went on to help pioneer the concept of digital propagation with his address book service Plaxo.
