Get All Information About The Youngest Billionaires In America

The recent year has been a windfall for the world’s wealthiest, even though the wealth gap between the rich and the poor widened even before the COVID-19 outbreak and the economic recession it produced. Most billionaires increased their wealth by billions, which might widen the inequality gap even further.

The 50 individuals on this list of the youngest billionaires have abundant economic stability, whereas the world’s working poor only dream of it. The youngest billionaire, born in 1995, is only 26 years old, while the oldest is 47. As of March 17, 2021, Stacker gathered net worth information from Forbes’ Real-Time Billionaires List. Any ties in age were broken by net worth, and the list is updated in real-time.

Others came from more modest origins, while many came from backgrounds that offered only chances to those with money. Some people left their home nations in search of opportunities, while others were born to single parents who had difficulty supporting them. While many billionaires on the list attended prestigious universities, such as the Ivies, and graduated from them, others never attended college or dropped out, sometimes to follow the ideas that eventually made them wealthy. Find out who made the elite and prestigious list by reading on.
