American biotechnology entrepreneur Elizabeth Anne Holmes was found guilty of criminal fraud. Holmes was born on February 3, 1984. In Houston, Holmes attended St. John’s School.
Holmes claimed to have found her first business selling C++ compilers to Chinese universities while still in high school because she was interested in computer programming.
In 2003, Holmes founded and served as the CEO of Theranos, a now-defunct health technology firm that saw its worth soar when it claimed to have revolutionized blood testing by creating techniques that could use remarkably little volumes of blood, like that obtained from a finger prick.
In relation to the $9 billion value of her business, Forbes declared Holmes the youngest and richest self-made female billionaire in America in 2015. As a result of evidence of possible fraud regarding Theranos’s claims started to emerge the following year, Forbes reduced its estimate of Holmes’s net worth to zero and Fortune included her in its feature article on “The World’s 19 Most Disappointing Leaders.”
