These 2 South African Billionaires Founded Monster Energy Drink

As everyone probably knows by now, Monster Energy Drink is by far one of the leading energy drinks in the world. Along with Redbull and Play, they up to 60% of the energy drink market in the world by a huge mile.

Monster is so big that it sponsors most of the sporting events including F1, DAKAR Rally, Boxing shows but most notably, Monster is known to sponsor the UFC.

When watching the UFC, you'll notice the large sticker occupying the middle of the octagon ring, where fighters like Connor MacGregor and Jon Jones exchange blows and spill blood.

It goes without saying that Monster pays millions of dollars on an annual basis to cater for its marketing department. This further ensures that their energy drinks are distributed massively on a worldwide stage to all people from all walks of life.

For those who don't know, Monster Energy Drink was actually started by 2 fellows who are originally from South Africa. These 2 entrepreneurs are called Rodney Sacks and Hilton Schlosberg.

They took Monster Energy Drink from being a small fish in the energy market, to being one of the 3 sharks that are currently dominating this competitive industry market.

Monster Energy Drink is enjoyed by millions of people worldwide, people love it for different reasons. Some to energize themselves, others to mix as dash with vodkas and so many other uses of this refreshing energy drink.

As you'd expect, they didn't launch or establish Monster while they were still residing in South Africa, they had to migrate to the United States in order to achieve this amazing achievement.

The environment of South Africa is blocked by politicians from progressing to massive heights. Mr Rodney Sacks and Hilton Schlosber migrated to the US in the 90s and in no time, they launched Monster.
