| Don't forget why we built this place, Claire. Jurassic World exists to remind us how very small we are. How new. You can't put a price on that.|

InGen Database Entry
Simon Masrani was the young CEO of the Masrani Global Corporation and had a particular focus on Jurassic World. The new park evolved after his company's acquisition of InGen which was in financial trouble from the various events at Jurassic Park and Isla Sorna.
Initially Jurassic World was a success, but its revenues declined as the novelty of the dinosaurs faded. This led to a hybrid project, the Indominus rex, being approved and pushed forward under Dr. Henry Wu's supervision. Before the Indominus was due to be shown to the public, Masrani visited the park to review progress and was impressed by the creature's abilities.
During the review, the Indominus escaped. Masrani didn't want to create a panic so refused to issue a park-wide alert, and wouldn't allow the ACU teams to use lethal force. The ACU teams were wiped out.
After witnessing his failure to control the situation, Masrani took direct intervention by piloting his helicopter, now armed with a minigun, to hunt down the Indominus rex. Injuring the creature, it ran into the nearby aviary and released the Pteranodons, one of which flew into the helicopter and destroyed it.
