Top 10 Richest Young Business Moguls in 2014

Full View
1. Mark Zuckerberg
1 of 10

Estimated Worth: $34 billion. Age: 30. Founder of a little social media site called Facebook. Zuckerberg’s wealth increased by $10+ billion due to some recent business acquisitions and moves.

Documenting the “richest young business moguls” is bound to create some debate. Do you rank by wealth, or age? At what age do you pass from “young” to “old” (or at least “older”)? It is incredibly subjective.

For the sake of argument, this list looks at business moguls under the age of 40. Far from saying an individual over 40 isn’t young anymore, it simply serves as a convenient cutoff point. Several entrepreneurs, then, just missed making the cut. Both Larry Page and Sergey Brin are 41 years old, but their estimated worth of $30 billion EACH would have otherwise seen them near the top of the list. Elon Musk, Evan Williams, Milane Frantz, Michael Dell, Pierre Omidyar, and Reid Hoffman, among many others, all have an estimated wealth of at least $3 billion, but they all find themselves in their old(er) 40s.

With only three exceptions (Chase Coleman, Nick Woodman, and Elizabeth Holmes), most of the top ten made their fortune in technology and/or apps.  

And in a testament to just how colossal and important Facebook is, no less than FOUR of the top ten owe at least a huge chunk of their wealth to the social media platform.
