1. Mark Zuckerberg


If you don’t know who Mark Zuckerberg is already, you really must have been living under a rock. Mark is an American entrepreneur who co-founded and is currently the CEO of the social networking behemoth we know as Facebook. Hailing from White Plains, New York, Mark started his programming at a very early age back in “Middle School” and it looks like that really paid off. Currently owning approximately 24% of Facebook, Mark is now a Multi-Billionaire, with a fortune of roughly $6.9bn and growing. So why is he top of the list? Well, I can think of a few reasons, 6.9 billion reasons in fact!

2. Dustin Moskovitz









Now Dustin may be a little less familiar to you than Mark (above) but he’s definitely someone who has struck lucky. In fact Dustin was one of the co-founders of Facebook along with Mark. Dustin has since left Facebook (back in 2008) and has now set up his own business, Asana a company that apparently tackles the problems of workplace collaborations. Still in it’s early development stages, Asana is currently in Beta mode if you are interested? So how much did he make? A little over $1.4bn.

3.Andrew Mason










Andrew Mason is the founder and CEO of the online business Groupon. A site you have all more than likely heard about or used before. Andrew Now just 29 years old is worth an estimated $600 million due to the sites huge success. Founded in 2008 Groupon has been steadily increasing it’s traffic and it’s income for the grateful founder. The aim of the website is to offer out daily deals to people all over the world via an online coupon service. Each and everyday Groupon releases new “Groupons” to its customers allowing them to receive discounts on anything from subway meals to laptops and much more. Andrew was given $1 million dollars by his previous employer in order to start this venture which has now made them both a lot of money in the 2 short years it has been up and running. I’m sure we can expect more from them in the near future.

4. Matthew Mullenweg









Its nice to have one of our own on the list, and I’m pretty sure we all know who this young chap is. Matthew Mullenweg is the founding developer of WordPress, a resource a lot of us use on a daily basis. Funnily enough his background is anything but technical, he went to a performing arts school, learned to play the Jazz Saxophone, and then he went on to created one of the best website and blog programs in the world. In 2005 he started the company Automatic, which became the backing force behind WordPress and Akismet. Well done Ma.tt – You see what I did there?

5 .Blake Ross









Blake Ross is an American software developer, known best for his work with Mozilla Firefox. That’s right at the age of 25yrs he has been able to accumulate a total fortune worth $150 million. In 2005 he was nominated for the Wired Magazines top “Rave Award” opposite some very popular names including Larry Page and Jon Stewart. Blake also co-founded the company Parakey which was eventually bought out by, yes you’ve guessed it, Facebook

6.  Gurbaksh Chahal









Gurbaksh Chahalis an American author and entrepreneur that has managed to create, build and grow two businesses into a massive empire worth $340 million, and all that before he is even 30yrs!

Gurbaksh is now the CEO and founder of gWallet.Inc. What an awe-inspiring story.
