Mark Zuckerberg Doubles His Net Worth in One Year

“The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking any risk.” These are wise words from one of the richest men in North America, Mark Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg seems to have landed gold. Although the Facebook creator’s net worth was dragging only last year, Zuckerberg’s net worth is back on track. After being estimated at $94 billion, about $8.1 billion down from the initial début on Nasdaq, Facebook CEO Zuckerberg’s net worth is still good to go.

Zuckerberg has a net worth of $19 billion according to Forbes 400. That makes Zuckerberg the sixth richest member coming from the technology industry. Another bonus for the hoodie-wearing rich guy: Zuckerberg is one of 48 people whose financial fortunes can be credited to the technology industry.

Alongside Zuckerberg; Bill Gates, Larry Ellison, Jeff Bezos, Larry Page and Sergey Brin vied for the top richest positions in the technology industry. Forbes used August 23, 2013 stock prices to gage values for the Forbes 400 rankings.
