richest man in the world

1 Jeff Bezos

  • Age: 57
  • Residence: Seattle, Wash.
  • Founder and CEO: Amazon
  • Net Worth: $177 billion
  • Amazon Ownership Stake: 11% ($174 billion)
  • Other Assets: Blue Origin ($7.15 billion private assets), Washington Post ($250 million private assets), and $9.75 billion in cash

In 1994, Jeff Bezos founded in a garage in Seattle, shortly after he resigned from the hedge fund giant D.E. Shaw.3 5 In fact, he had originally pitched the idea of an online bookstore to his former boss David E. Shaw, who wasn't interested.

Though originally started out selling books, it has since morphed into a one-stop-shop for everything under the sun and is arguably the world's largest retailer.5 At any rate, it is hard to dispute its self-description as the "earth's most customer-centric company.

Its pattern of constant diversification is evident in some of its unexpected expansions, which include acquiring Whole Foods in 2017 and launching its own branded over-the-counter drugs in Feb. 2018.8 9 In 2020, Amazon's share price skyrocketed on the heightened demand for online shopping as lockdowns forced consumers to stay home.

2. Elon Musk

  • Net Worth: $151 billion
  • Tesla Ownership Stake: 20% ($114 billion)
  • Other Assets: Space Exploration Technologies ($29.8 billion private assets) and Boring Company ($101 million private assets)

Elon Musk has had his hands in several different companies over the years. Originally enrolled at Stanford University, Musk deferred his attendance to launch Zip, one of the earliest online navigation services. A portion of the proceeds from this endeavor was then reinvested to create, an online payment system that later became PayPal. While both of these systems were eventually sold to other companies, Musk has maintained his status as CEO and lead designer of his third project, Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX), which aims to make space exploration more affordable.

In 2004, Musk became a major funder of Tesla Motors (now Tesla), which led to him being retroactively declared a co-founder and his current position as CEO of the electric vehicle company. In addition to its line of electric automobiles—which include sedans, sport utility vehicles (SUVs), and the "Cybertruck" announced in 2019—Tesla also produces energy storage devices, automobile accessories, merchandise, and, through its acquisition of SolarCity in 2016, solar power systems. In 2020, Telsa's stock price experienced an astronomical surge, having risen 705% from the start of the year to mid-December. It joined the S&P 500 that same month, the largest company added thus far.
