Blog 76: The World’s Youngest Billionaire Is…

The name John Collison maybe strange to a lot of people but at the young age of 26, Forbes have listed him as the youngest billionaire in the world with a net worth of $1.1bn.

While most young adults his age are partying away, calling in sick for work the next day due to hangover and in some cases unemployed, this young man made his first $5m in 2008 when he sold his first tech company Auctomatic.

He and his brother then started a payment processing company called Stripe that is now enabling in app purchase on most mobile device.

The company is now valued at $9.2 billion.

If this young Irish man is not a motivation to all including myself then I certainly don’t know what that word means.

He has broken the record that was held by Snapchat co-founder Evan Spiegel.
