The Richest Billionaires In The Tech World
Plenty of information has been published about the richest individuals in the world by a number of publications. It should come as no surprise that the richest individuals on this planet are mostly representing the tech industry. They are known as the richest billionaires in the tech world. Their fortunes were entirely built on the industry of technology but they also have investments in other fields which have contributed to their fortunes.
These individuals did not receive everything on a platter but had to work their way up before they could reach the position they presently are in. They are not just involved in the business of enriching themselves but are also active in philanthropic causes and are prepared to share the wealth they have accumulated. Let us look at the richest billionaires in the tech world.
Bill Gates has a net worth of $75 billion and is a resident of the United States. Gates leads the list of the richest billionaires in the tech world as the founder of the largest software business in the world Microsoft. Gates just owns around 3% of Microsoft which accounts for less than 20% of his fortune. He also has stakes in the Canadian National Railway, Deere and Company, Republic Services Ecolab, and in June 2008 Gates relieved himself from the day to day activities of Microsoft in order to spend more time with his philanthropic initiatives.
Jeffrey Preston Bezos is also a resident of the United States and is worth $45.2 billion and is the founder and CEO of the e-commerce giant Amazon. Bezos is a graduate of the Princeton University and his investments also include Grail, Convoy, FundBox And General Fusion. Bezos founded Blue Origin in 2000 which is a human spaceflight startup company.
Mark Zuckerberg is fourth on the list of the richest billionaires in the tech world and is worth $44.6 billion. He is also a resident of the United States and the founder of Facebook.
Zuckerberg began his venture with Facebook in his college dormitory in 2004 with his roommates Chris Hughes and Dustin Moskovitz when he was just 19 and the venture seems to have paid good returns for him.
Larry Ellison the founder of Oracle is again from the United States and is fifth on the list of the richest billionaires in the tech world. Ellison served as the CEO of Oracle until September 2014. He is also popular for racing sailboats, flying planes, playing tennis and the guitar.
Page is number six on the list of the richest billionaires in the tech world and the CEO of Google’s parent company Alphabet.
Alphabet stocks surpassed the stock from Apple as the most valuable company in the world after posting strong quarterly results. Page is worth $35.2 billion.
Sergey Brin is the president of Alphabet the new parent company Brin and Larry Page announced in August 2015. The company’s under the umbrella of Alphabet also include Calico, Nest, Google Ventures And Google X. Sergey holds a degree in computer science from the Stanford University and is worth $34.4 million.
Steve Ballmer is the former CEO of Microsoft and has a net worth of $23.5 billion. Ballmer resigned as the CEO of Microsoft and as a director in 2014 but he has retained a 4% stake in the company. Ballmer has expressed interest in holding Microsoft shares until he is able to give something to charity or his end. He is the largest shareholder of Microsoft and has a bigger stake in the company than co-founder Bill Gates.
These are the richest billionaires in the tech world who are all living in the United States. One other name that has not been mentioned in this list is that of Michael Dell who is the chairman of the Board of Directors and the CEO of Dell which was founded in 1984. The fact that his name has not been mentioned in the list of the richest billionaires in the tech world does not diminish his standing in any manner because he still has a net worth of $19.8 billion. The richest billionaires in the tech world all made it big in the land of opportunity, America and are residing within the country.
