Richest people | Who is the richest man in the world

Most people don't know the richest man in the world. So we made a list of top richest people in the world including business tycoons, tech gurus, heirs to family fortunes, rappers, actors, and online celebrities.

Richest Man In The World Including Billionaires

These days many of the world’s richest persons made their money by investing or starting in technology companies that would go on to reshape our lives along with the world economy. Founders and CEOs of Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Facebook, and other tech brands have racked up billions over the years.

Top 20 Richest People In The World

1. Jeff Bezos

His feud with the President of the United States hasn’t made a dent in the Amazon founder’s wealth. According to Bloomberg, Jeff Bezos is worth $133 billion and is the first person – and only – to have a net worth of more than $100 billion. Moving to Seattle, one of the best places for tech start-ups, in the 1990s has definitely paid off for Jeff, who is now officially the richest person in the world.
