Said Guzeriev lived in London for 17 years, and on his return to Moscow he became CEO of the Forteinvest oil refinery, which belongs to his father's group of companies, the Safmar Group.

Ehrsam got his first contact with crypto currencies, which would later make him rich.

He was a passionate player in the online role-playing game "World of Warcraft".

With Paradigm, he later created a second pillar alongside Coinbase.

Patrick Collison, too, got rich more or less thanks to financial transactions made by others.

In 2010 he founded

Almost everyone knows his invention - at least among young people.

Not necessarily himself.

Bobby Murphy invented the Snapchat photo-sending app.

His net worth shot from $ 1.9 billion to $ 11.9 billion between 2020 and 2021.

Snapchat founder Bobby Murphy is the richest person under the age of 31



Among the youngest billionaires, only one comes close to the American born in 1988.

Compared to the experienced business people, Murphy still has to place himself far behind.

Murphy will be able to cope with the fact that 184 people are richer than him.

19th place: Whitney Wolfe Herd, USA


© Jerod Harris / GETTY IMAGES NORTH AMERICA / Getty Images via AFP

Whitney Wolfe Herd has made countless people happy and made themselves rich.

She co-founded the dating app Tinder.

In 2014 she left the company with a bang and several million dollars in compensation.

The American, born in 1989, sued several Tinder employees for sexual harassment.

Whitney Wolfe Herd was also dissatisfied with the platform and launched her own version.

Here, digital attacks by men are rigorously prevented.

The Bumble app is reminiscent of Tinder's layout.

The dating portal Badoo is also part of the portfolio.

Thanks to the apps, Wolfe Herd is around $ 1.3 billion today.

Speculation about an algorithm that helps business women to maximize profits rather than singles to find a partner can be found on both portals.

18th place: Anna Kasprzak, Denmark


© Martin Sylvest / Imago

The young Danish woman belongs to the family business ECCO.

It is one of the world's largest shoe producers.

ECCO produces all imaginable types of shoes, the company is the world market leader in sports shoes.

The fashion empire Anna Kasprzak has already brought in 1.46 billion dollars.

It was once the tranquil rose pharmacy.

Today Ludwig Theodor Braun (born 1989) is at the helm of a pharmaceutical giant.

B. Braun Melsungen is one of the world market leaders in pharmaceutical and medical supplies.

The company survived a tangible scandal.

In the 1990s it became known that Braun illegally obtained meninges from Berlin hospitals.

In addition, they were not adequately tested and some of them were infected with HIV.

The contaminated material presumably led to 120 people - mostly in Japan - being infected with Creutzfeld-Jakob disease.

16th place: Xu Yi, China


© VGC / Imago

Xu Yi is a streaming billionaire.

His portal "Bilibili" deals with cartoons, manga comics and games.

The innovative live streaming function is what makes the provider so popular in China.

And its chairman is about $ 3.4 billion rich.

Bilibili doesn't just focus on pure, conventional streaming.

The group has massively expanded the range.

Music, dance, entertainment, everyday life and also advertising films are part of the inventory.

So Xi Yu is young and innovative - and was born in 1990.

15th place: Lisa Dräxlmaier, Germany

Cheers to the daughter!

Lisa Dräxlmaier bites through a traditional male domain.

Keep it up!

Born in 1990 or 1991 in Lower Bavaria, she follows in the footsteps of her father Fritz (on the right next to Saxony's Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer).

She heads the Lower Bavarian family company "Dräxlmaier AG".

It produces and sells auto parts such as interior fittings, storage systems and electrics.

Afterpay is

largely unknown

in Germany


This is probably due to the German aversion to credit cards.

Because Molnar has expanded this payment system.



, customers can shop in-store and simply pay for them later.

With $ 1.8 billion in assets, Molnar is unlikely to need a grace period.

13th place: Pedro de Godoy Bueno, Brazil


© Eugenio Savio / dpa

Diagnosticos da America SA, or DASA for short, is the largest clinical diagnosis company in Brazil.

It also operates food testing, advertising, human capital identification and research facility.

That and the work with health insurance made Pedro de Godoy Bueno, born in 1990 or 1991, the youngest billionaire in his country.

DASA is owned by Pedro de Godoy together with his former wife Dulce Pgliese de Godoy Bueno.

His fortune shot through the roof during the corona pandemic.

It has more than doubled in the past year.

The $ 1.1 billion became $ 3 billion.

The young billionaire holds back largely from the public.

12th place: John Collison, Ireland

Yes, you already know this last name from the list.

John Collison is the younger brother of Patrick Collison and is naturally higher up in the ranking.

He was born in 1990, two years younger than his brother and

We get into the top ten and fall below the magical 30 mark.

Jonathan Kwok was born in 1993 and has already been through a violent up-and-down - and up - again.

In 2019, his fortune shrank by a fifth, now he's almost back in it.

9th place: Sam Bankman-Fried, USA

There are few public photos of Sam Bankman-Fried.

This selfie of his public Facebook profile shows him in 2015, two years before he founded his companies Alameda Research and FTX and earned billions.

The financial expert, born in 1991, who has a curly, curly head in more recent pictures, is considered a luminary in the field of crypto currencies.

Bankman-Fried surprised the scene with an unusual approach ...

BitMex: Crypto Trading Portal Turns Billions Every Day - Bankman-Fried Gets His Part



Traders actually prefer to stay under the radar, Bankman-Fried once told

Bloomberg News.

They hope that anonymity will provide the best protection against hackers or the exposure of their strategies.

Alameda Research takes a completely opposite path.

Company performance is recorded on a leaderboard at BitMex.

Billions of dollars are turned over here every day.

The principle is successful: it catapulted a spectacular $ 8.7 billion into the account of Sam Bankman-Fried and two of his assets in the top ten most successful trading investments.

8th place: Stanley Tang, USA

Stanley Tang created the model for delivery services like Lieferando - in turbocapitalist North America with even less occupational safety.

With the

Independent suppliers then bring the meal by car, bike or on foot.

Tang only recently got a lot of money in one fell swoop.


announced in February 2020 that it wanted to go public.

Then Corona came and brought the delivery app a crazy boom.

Due to the contact restrictions, the orders * increased enormously, of course.

The IPO followed in December and flushed 3.4 billion into the company's coffers.

Tang has two billion in his own account.

In the spring of 2021, however, many drivers began to protest in the USA.

Working conditions are unbearable for them during the pandemic.

7th place: Andy Fang, USA

Andy Fang is the technical mastermind behind the success of


- speaking of behind (the camera): Pictures of Fang are hardly available.

As a lead developer, he was instrumental in making the app work so well.

He is only a few months younger than his co-founder Stanley Tang.

Auch ihn treffen also die Proteste der Fahrer und Fahrerinnen. Wobei das Unternehmen an einigen der großen Nöte der Dasher nicht mittelbar beteiligt ist. Sie fordern unter anderem mehr Sicherheit im Verkehr, Räume für Aufenthalt und Wartezeit sowie Zugang zu Hygieneprodukten. Fairness schreiben Stang und Fang auf jeden Fall zumindest untereinander offenbar groß. Beide Firmen-Gründer verfügen über gleich viel Eigenkapital.

Platz 6: Gustav Magnar Witzoe, Norwegen

Sieh dir diesen Beitrag auf Instagram an


You have no idea how this young man with the model expression earns his money ... fish.

Gustav Magnar Witzoe is the largest shareholder in the

SalMar ASA



The company is one of the largest farm salmon producers in the world.

The young entrepreneur was born in 1993 and is one of the youngest billionaires on the planet.

Very young billionaire through salmon farming: Controversial business model


© Chromorange / Imago

Looks idyllic, but is highly controversial: salmon farming in aquaculture.

The fish need exercise and plenty of food.

They are fattened with soy, suffer from parasites and fungal infections.

The situation is not bad in every breed, but animal breeders protest vehemently against the keeping methods.

Entrepreneurs like Gustav Magnar Witzoe (the young Norwegian is worth $ 4.4 billion) will still get rich with it.

5th place: Austin Russell, USA

Austin Russell is a self-made billionaire, allegedly a thorn in the side of Mercedes-Benz and Elon Musk.

All of this already in her mid-twenties.

Russell has developed a new sensor technology for self-driving cars * with which he wants to conquer the automotive market.

Daimler is convinced - Musk says it will fail.

Russell's company "Luminar Technologies" is currently cooperating with several large manufacturers.

Austin Russell is known as something of a genius.

The now 2.4-time billionaire allegedly learned the periodic table of the elements at the age of two, converted his Nintendo DS into a working cell phone in sixth grade and applied for his first patent at the age of 13.

It was a water recycling system that collects water from garden sprinkler systems.

His declared goal today is to make the world safer with self-driving cars.

The Californian, who was born in 1995, also earns good money.

4th place: Katharina Andresen, Norway

We are returning to more controversial wealth origins.

Johan F. Andresen bequeathed his shares in Ferd Holdings, Norway's largest family company, to his two daughters.

One of them is Katharina Andresen, born in 1995.

It is largely based on the tobacco industry.

Because Katharina's great-great-grandfather once founded the largest cigarette company in the country.

The family let the 447 million euros, which the sale later brought in, flow into real estate and hedge funds.

Katharina Andresen enjoys the comforts of an affluent life and likes to show them off.

You can see them on Instagram on luxurious vacations in London, New York and also on sinfully expensive yachts.

With $ 1.4 billion on the high edge, she can afford it.

3rd place: Alexandra Andresen, Norway

Her little sister Alexandra Andresen also apparently wants to get more involved in the family business "Ferd Holdings".

But she does not keep her wealth to herself.

She did not initially disclose how much of the $ 1.4 billion she plans to use for charity.

Alexandra Andresen is an animal lover

In her private life, Alexandra Andresen seems to love animals more than anything.

She created her own Instagram page for her Dobermanns King and Cairo (pictured).

In terms of sport, she also has to do with four-legged friends: She is a passionate tournament rider.

2nd place: Wang Zelong, China

Second place went to Wang Zelong from China.

Zelong is not a self-made billionaire either.

The Chinese inherited company shares valued at US $ 1.3 billion in CNNC Hua Yuan Titanium Dioxide Co.


© CHTi company logo (screenshot)

As the name almost suggests, the company produces titanium dioxide pigments, a white pigment that can be used in coatings, plastics, inks, and other materials.

The company's products are marketed by CHTi.

As for the production of these pigments, CHTi is the second largest manufacturer in China.

In addition, little is known about Wang Zelong.

1st place: Kevin David Lehmann, Germany


© Jochen Tack / Imago Images

Geboren im Jahr 2002, reich geworden im Jahr 2016. Denn schon mit 14 Jahren wurden Kevin David Lehmann die Anteile seines Vaters Günther Lehmann an der Drogeriemarke dm überschrieben. Er ist damit zwar der jüngste Milliardär der ganzen Welt, mit einem Vermögenswert von 3,3 Milliarden Dollar schafft er es auf der Forbes Liste der reichsten Milliardäre weltweit trotzdem nur auf Platz 925. Gleichzeitig hat er natürlich noch sein ganzes Leben vor sich, vielleicht klettert er also noch ein paar Plätze weiter nach oben. Bilder existieren von dem jungen Milliardär und seinem Vater nicht, die Lehmanns wollen privat bleiben*. Ganz zur Trauer zahlreicher amerikanischer Medien, die seit dem Erscheinen der Forbes-Liste 2021 versuchen, ein Interview mit dem jungen Milliardär zu ergattern...

Günther Lehmann: Well catered for thanks to the dm drugstore chain


© Uli Deck / dpa

The also very discreet father of the youngest billionaire in the world had a good nose in the 1970s.

Lehmann acquired 50 percent of the shares in dm - a drugstore chain, of which the second branch was only opened at the time.

The founder Götz Werner lacked the capital for more.

So Lehmann, who was the head of the Karlsruhe food company Pfannkuch at the time, got on board and took care of his life and that of his son.

Want some more billionaires?

Then you shouldn't let this list of the richest Germans get on you.
