Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter

He started as a self-taught programmer. He also ventured into the world of business with a company dealing with taxis and deliveries, but it didn't go well. However, he decided to put into practice his well-developed abilities with a smile on his face when he turned 30. And voilà! He created Twitter, one of the world's most successful social networks. His fortune is currently estimated at $1.27 billion.

Tim Westergren, founder of Pandora Radio

The Pandora online radio counts currently with 72 million listeners. However, two years after the beginning of this project, Tim was not even able to pay regular salaries to his employees. At that time, he was also working as a composer and as a babysitter. But he never gave up and to date, he has managed to build up a whole fortune!

Jan Koum, co-founder of WhatsApp

Nowadays, WhatsApp is one of the most popular messengers, but Koum's path to success was not easy. Jan Koums’ family migrated to the United States from Ukraine in 1992. The first years were very difficult, but he found a job as a cleaner at a grocery store. From there, and armed with his self-taught programming skills, he got hired by Yahoo. Meanwhile, he was also applying for a job in Facebook as a programmer, though he just received a refusal. Ironically, Facebook bought WhatsApp for $19 billion in 2014.

Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba

Can you believe that this man used a computer for the first time when he was 30? Right! And he has never been afraid to admit neither that nor his failures! Like failing his college entrance exams three times in a row or being turned down in job vacancies more than 30 times. As when he got rejected in the KFC fast-food chain. However, Jack’s first IT-project yielded more than $800,000, and his company Alibaba has become incredibly successful worldwide.

Reed Hastings, father of Netflix

The creator of Netflix once acknowledged that after hitchhiking across Africa with just $10 in his pocket, he was not afraid of anything. Not even of starting a business. Soon after that, his IT-company, Pure Software, was bought by the giant Rational Software and lost 42% of its shares! However, every cloud has a silver lining: the money Mr. Hastings got for selling his company became the start-up capital for Netflix, a company that was destined to make history with 50 million subscribers worldwide!
