Harpo Inc.

Winfrey is the founder of Harpo Studios, a multimedia company she launched in 1986. The name of the company is rooted in the backward spelling of her name Oprah. She established the company to take over the production of her talk show, which catapulted her into the limelight.

In addition to her show, Harpo Studios has produced films like The Color Purple, Selma, and Beloved. Together, the movies made around $2 billion, and Harpo Studios has an estimated net worth of $150 million, according to Forbes.

Though Winfrey sold Harpo Studios in Chicago some years ago, her company, Harpo Inc., remains under her ownership and leadership.
