Top 10 Youngest Billionaires in The World 2016

The dream of every young person our there is to make it big. Others struggle to get a decent job, rent an apartment in a good neighborhood and just live each day at time. Few manage to have reasonable monthly savings while a vacation in the Caribbean is just but a pipe dream to many. Yet there are young people who have hit the billionaire status, those who don't have to look at price tags at the designer store. They can afford almost every luxury that there is to imagine. Some of these young billionaires were born into riches while others had to be extraordinary to accumulate such wealth. From technology to real estate, these are some of the youngest billionaires in the world in the year 2016.

10. Thomas Persson

This 30 year old Swedish billionaire has an estimated net worth of about $2.7 billion. Nearly all of his wealth is inherited thanks to having a business savvy grandfather. His family owns the H&M company which is a very popular and cheap chic retailer. His father is the richest person in Sweden and his aunt, sister and brother are all billionaires. This young billionaire loves globetrotting and also does film production having graduated from the London Met Film School.

9. Joe Gebbia

Airbnb is a pretty famous company so you've probably heard of it. Joe Gebbia is its co-founder and also the chief product officer. Joe is also known for his signature bow-ties. At 33 years of age, he has an estimated net worth of $3 billion. He is a great enthusiast of modern architecture and says that his greatest dream is to spend a night at the famous Eames Case Study House number eight. Only if affording it were an option Joe, we are quite sure you could spend a night there.

8. Brian Chesky

The 33 year old co-founded Airbnb back in 2008 together with Joe Gabby. To imagine that the multi-billion dollar company was founded because they were looking for options to raise rent money is just inspiring. He has a net worth estimated at $3 billion.

7. Nathan Blecharczyk

The 32 year old is also a co-founder of Airbnb. He serves as the CTO of the company in charge of overseeing its technology strategy. A software engineer by profession, his net worth is estimated at $3 billion.

6. Elizabeth Holmes

I know you've probably heard about future billionaires dropping out of Ivy league universities, this is one of them. Elizabeth dropped out of Stanford University in her sophomore year to follow a less trodden path. She started the blood diagnostics company called Theranos, now valued at almost $9 billion. The 31 year old herself has a net worth estimated at $4.5 billion. Where would you take her for a date that would totally blow her mind because honestly there are not many things that she can't afford.

5. Scott Duncan

Energy is always a good sector of the economy to invest in. Together with his sisters, Scott Duncan inherited a very successful energy pipeline company called Enterprise Product Partners. The 32 year old is estimated to be worth $5 billion. I bet he could retire if he wanted to because with that amount of money, you are basically set for life.

4. Eduardo Saverin

This 33 year old was best friends with Mark Zuckerberg at Harvard before the Facebook head famously cut him off when the company was just taking off. His net worth is estimated at $5.3 billion but had he managed to retain his 30% stake at Facebook, he would now be worth $34 billion. Such is life.

3. Yang Huiyan

Believed to be the richest woman in Asia, the 34 year old Ohio State University graduated has an estimated net worth of $5.9 billion. She inherited most of her fortune from her father in 2007 when he transferred his company, Country Garden Holdings, a property investment company, to her.

2. Dustin Moskovitz

The 31 year old was one of the founding members of Facebook. The Harvard dropout learnt programming just to launch the giant social media site. He stayed at Facebook for four years before leaving to co-found the company called Asana. His net worth is estimated at $9.3 billion.

1. Mark Zuckerberg

He basically revolutionized social media with the launch of Facebook. He resisted earlier temptations to sell the company which he launched in his dorm room and it clearly paid off because Zuckerberg's net worth is now estimated at $46.1 billion. At just 31 years of age, that is such a huge fortune for a young and self-made person like him.

These are the youngest billionaires in the world and whether their fortunes were inherited or they were self-made, the fact remains that they have attained financial milestones that very few people in the world even dream of ever achieving.
