Stories about the richest celebrities around the world

Authoritative sources name over 20 billionaires under the age of 40 – Buffett is 85, and still going strongly near the top of the list of ‘richest’, but in this technological age, he may soon be surpassed by any number of bright, relatively young things climbing the ladder of financial success. Most are indeed involved in IT; 17 are American, one Israeli, one Canadian, and one Ukraine-born but a long-time American citizen, although only one is a woman. Interestingly, several companies have spawned more than one of these young billionaires.

So soon one of the richest celebrities may overtake buffet.Founder and CEO of Dropbox, a file-hosting, back-up and sharing company, is Drew Houston, whose net worth is now $1.4 billion built from an idea launched in 2007 when he was 24.One of only two non-Americans on the list is Israeli Adam Neumann, who founded WeWork in 2010 as a file-sharing service, and which has so far netted him $1.5 billion at the age of 36.All the above-mentioned young guns pale into relative financial insignificance in comparison to Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, who at the age of 31 now has a fortune estimated at over $47 billion which, depending on the fluctuations of the share market, ranks Zuckerberg as the seventh richest person in the world in late 2015, an impressive reward for a little over 10 years creative work!
