Bill Gates: Business Magnate – $107 Billion
Bill Gates is undeniably one of the wealthiest people in the world because he’s worth a jaw-dropping $107 billion. His great affluence comes from the success of his company, Microsoft. He first founded the company back in the mid-’70s with Paul Allen. In recent years, he hasn’t been the big boss at Microsoft anymore because he chose to devote more of his time to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He is all about helping people, and half of his wealth will be donated to philanthropic causes in the future because he is part of The Giving Pledge.
