Begun as a joint-stock company for trade with the East Indies, this organization would evolve into one of the world’s first capitalistic corporations.

Over the course of their 250+ years, the East India Company had built a global trading empire, raised an army and waged war, and conquered vast territory, including the entire subcontinent of India. Without their involvement, the British presence in India would look very different in the historical record. Though the company was dissolved by 1874, their influence on world history cannot be overstated.
