When Steve Jobs died on October 5, 2011, tributes poured in from across the globe. And in the days following his death, one Hungarian software company commissioned a statue in honor of the co-founder of Apple. Unveiled less than three months after his death, it became the world’s first memorial statue of Steve Jobs.
The statue was unveiled on December 21, 2011, in Graphisoft Park, a science and technology park established by Graphisoft in 1997. It was commissioned by Gabor Bojar, the founder and chairman of Graphisoft, a software company that caught the eye of Jobs back in the 1980s.
