If you remember, GSV Capital bought 225,000 shares of Facebook, valuation of about $70 billion. As Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is the major shareholder in Facebook, so now he ranks third richest tech guys in the world with net worth is over $18 billion behind Microsoft’s (MSFT) Bill Gates worth $56 billion and Oracle’s (ORCL) Larry Ellison worth $39.5 billion. Well ahead Google (GOOG) Sergey Brin and Larry Page ($17 billion).
Also in the top rich tech guys, Amazon chief Jeff Bezos (17.8 billion), Wipro Technologies chief Azim Premji (16.8 billion), Michael Dell ($14.6 billion), Steve Ballmer ($14.5 billion), Paul Allen ($13 billion) and Steve Jobs and Google’s Eric Schmidt with $8.3 and $7 billion.
If you plan to catch Bill Gates, its long way to go Mark… All the best!!!
