4 Famous Self-Made Billionaires


Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Elliot Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire on our list. I think everyone knows him, or at least his “invention”.  He is an american computer programmer and Internet entrepreneur. He is best known as the co-founder of Facebook. He is also the chairman of Facebook. His wealth is around 35 billion dollars. It’s a very interesting thing, that he receives only one dollar as the CEO of Facebook. He used to study at Harvard University, and he launched Facebook there with his roommates (Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, Chris Hughes).
