The information superhighway has truly evolved by leaps and bounds over the years in many more ways than the average consumer realizes or would even like to admit in the first place. It was allowed billions of people to communicate with other people around the world through their computer screens and mobile devices. It has also given businesses the competitive edge that they need to expand their horizon of exposure all around the globe. However, there is an extensive list of people that have been able to make a substantial high-class living off of the work that they have been able to complete within the digital age. Here is a list of the top five Internet entrepreneurs, ranging from the weakest to the strongest.
This Iranian American man was actually born in France. He was able to establish a monumental level of success when he decided to establish the international online sensation – eBay.com. Keep in mind that eBay has been able to evolve and grow into the second most popular listed website after Amazon.com. He was able to make his first billion dollars with this particular website by the time that he reached the young age of 31. Pierre is also a major philanthropist that is known for his substantial contributions to charitable causes and non-profit organizations.
Marc Zuckerberg was able to make it to this list primarily because of the work that he contributed to the development of Facebook, the most successful and popular social media platform today. Not only is Facebook the most popular social media website but it is also the website that is visited the 2nd most in the world as well. Even though he is technically a college drop-out, Zuckerberg was still able to use his knowledge and skillset to create a multi-billion dollar empire and industry.
Amazon.com was developed and is currently being run by billionaire investor, Jeff Bezos. Reports have confirmed that Jeff Bezos actually established Amazon and started it within the garage in his home. He has allowed his technical skills, knowledge and experience to escalate his name to the list of the top 15 richest people around the world. Even though he had already been widely known for creating and contributing to many other online projects and websites before and since establishing Amazon.com, that flagship website is known as his entrepreneurial masterpiece.
Sergey Brin worked side by side with Larry Page to develop the search engine powerhouse Google from the group up. He actually met Larry Page while they both attended Stanford College and almost immediately became close friends and colleagues. Sergey Brin is not only a billionaire internet entrepreneur but is also a trained and educated computer scientist as well, currently serving as the department head of the Research department for Google, Inc. He is also the man that is specifically behind the controversial yet highly-anticipated development of Google Glass.
As mentioned earlier, Larry Page is a co-founder of Google. Just like his close friend and colleague, Sergey Brin, Larry Page is also a trained and educated computer scientist. He currently serves as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of this corporation and works side by side with Larry as they continue to grow this company by leaps and bounds with each passing year.
