The 20 Richest People In Tech: Forbes 400
From Larry Ellison to MacKenzie Scott and Michael Dell, here are the richest people in technology, according to Forbes’ recent ranking.
To make the Forbes 400 list in 2022, the minimum net worth an individual must make was down $200 million to $2.7 billion. The drop was the first of its kind since the Great Recession, according to Forbes. The wealthiest people are, in fact, not as wealthy as they were a year ago.
Because of the drop, 42 people, ranging from ages 29 to 90, joined or rejoined the ranks of the richest people. Their fortunes were calculated using stock prices from September 2, 2022, according to Forbes.
While many on the list range from oil-and-gas tycoons to sports moguls to real estate investors, many of the top 20 are in the technology industry.
From tech magnate Michael Dell to Amazon mogul Jeff Bezos and Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison, here are the 20 richest people in technology, according to Forbes.
