Top 10 Richest Entrepreneurs in 2021

Top 10 Richest Entrepreneurs in 2021 & How They Made It

An entrepreneur is a person who sets up a business or an organization by taking a financial risk.

With financial risk comes a chance to earn financial rewards in terms of profit. Apart from financial gain, entrepreneurs are also motivated by factors like innovation, disruption, making an impact etc.

What makes a successful entrepreneur?. What made the richest entrepreneurs so successful?.

I believe entrepreneurial success depends on the following traits:

  • Strategic mindset
  • People management skills
  • Holding nerve during a downturn
  • Perseverance

But entrepreneurship isn’t easy & definitely not a recommended career line for the faint hearted ones. Having said that, it does provide an immense opportunity to change the world for a better. Had an entrepreneur not taken a risk then products like social networks, search engines, messenger apps & digital wallets would not have been invented.

With numerous global challenges now, the world needs more & better entrepreneurs. But, unfortunately, entrepreneurship hasn’t picked pace like other professions due to various business factors like increased competitiveness. As per a study conducted by CNN, number of Startups in the US had hit a 40-year low in the year 2016.

So, now let us go through a list of top 10 richest entrepreneurs (as per Forbes latest report)

In this we are bringing to you the Top richest Entrepreneurs, both in 2018 till 2021 today
