Net Worth: $192.6 Billion
During his childhood, Jeff Bezos already showed a knack for all things technology-related. With that said, it comes as no surprise that he finished his studies with a degree in both electrical engineering and computer science – plus, he was his batch’s summa cum laude. After he graduated, Jeff landed his first job with Fitel, followed by Bankers Trust and DE Shaw & Co. Jeff decided to establish his own online bookstore business, with more than enough experience under his belt. This bookstore would then go on to become the e-commerce giant Amazon.
Founded in his garage, Amazon has since expanded from books and to just about anything and everything. Besides this widely-known e-commerce platform, Jeff has also ventured to other endeavors, including the human spaceflight company Blue Origin and the newspaper company The Washington Post. With all the work he has done, the Amazon founder now has an impressive net worth of $192.6 billion.
