How many big corporations today started out with a plan to “become a big corporation”?

I mean, I believe that when Microsoft started, Gates' plan wasn't to build the next "tech giant" and I'm pretty sure Facebook wasn't started out to become the biggest social media network in the world, not did coca cola say "let's make the most consumed soda in the world".

So does anyone know of or has anyone heard of successful/big corporation today who's initial plan was to "become a giant in their industry" or "expand to 200 countries", and so on, right from the beginning?
