Ryan John and Phoebe Adele Gates

Some kids are born into wealth, while others do a pretty decent job of making it themselves. With more and more entrepreneurs getting their head start in business before they even graduate high school, the world of business is rapidly becoming a playground for teenagers. Factor in the wealth that some kids make through music, TV, film, or just exceedingly wealthy parents, and it’s clear that the status of millionaire is no longer reserved solely for the older generation. Here, we take a look at the 10 richest teenagers in the world in 2019.

Alina Morse

10. Alina Morse – Net Worth: $2 million

At just fourteen years old, Alina Morse is proving you don’t have to be a white, middle-aged man to be a success in business. The enterprising entrepreneur is the founder of Zollipops, a company that launched to massive fanfare in 2015 and has since made over $2 million in shipping sugar-free lollipops to legions of sweet-toothed but health-conscious Americans. Now sold in over 7000 stores, the company is on the fast track to making over $6 million in sales this year.

Ben Pasternak

9. Ben Pasternak – Net Worth: $2 million

You know someone’s got a bright future in front of them if they’re making millions before they even graduate high school. Australian entrepreneur Ben Pasternak made his fortune thanks to several highly successful social networking mobile apps, including Monkey Inc, Flogg, and Impossible Rush. Impossible Rush proved so successful that, as The Sydney Morning Herald notes, it even managed to outperform Twitter and Tinder on App Store top charts. Another app of Pasternak’s creation is Impossible Dial, which he sold in 2014 for $85,000. His status as one of the brightest young stars of his generation was cemented in 2016 when he was named one of TIME Magazine’s Most Influential Teens.

Syed Sumail Hassan

8. Syed Sumail Hassan – Net Worth: $3 million

When Syed Sumail Hassan was 7 years old, he began playing Dota 2. Fast forward 12 years, and he’s now one of the leading gamers in the world, having won multiple Dota 2 championships with his team ‘Evil Geniuses’, and prize money of more than $6.5 million. In 2016, he was named one of TIME’s ‘30 Most Influential Teens’ and is currently estimated to be worth at least $3 million.

Jaylen Bledsoe

7. Jaylen Bledsoe – Net Worth: $3.5 million

At the age of just 12 years old, Jaylen Bledsoe founded the IT consulting company, Bledsoe Technologies. The startup has since grown into a multi-million-dollar global enterprise with over 150 contracted employees. The enterprising teenager is believed to be worth around $3.5 million.

Willow Smith

6. Willow Smith – Net worth: $4 million

The daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinket-Smith was never exactly going to be poor, but thanks to her efforts to establish herself as a singer, songwriter, record producer, actress, and dancer, she’s far exceeded the net worth her pocket money would otherwise allow. Since making her acting legend alongside her father in I am Legend, she’s appeared in numerous films and TV shows, including Adventure Time (2018), and Merry Madagascar (2009). She currently hosts the web television talk show, Red Table Talk, alongside her mother and Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and released her third studio album, Willow, in July 2019. She’s currently worth an estimated $4 million.

Jackie Evancho

5. Jackie Evancho – Net Worth: $4 million

At just 19 years old, Jackie Evancho has already enjoyed the kind of success people 20 years her senior can only dream of. She first came to our attention at the age of 10 after placing 2nd in the fifth season of America’s Got Talent. Since then, she’s gone from strength to strength, releasing several hugely successful albums and even singing at the inauguration of President Trump. According to Celebrity Net Worth, she’s worth in the region of $4 million.

Ryan John and Phoebe Adele Gates

4. Ryan John and Phoebe Adele Gates – Net Worth: $10 million

Some kids work hard to make their money. Others have the luxury of having parents who make it for them. In the case of Bill and Melinda Gates’ youngest kids, Ryan John and Phoebe Adele Gates, it’s most definitely a case of the latter. While Bill has publicly announced his offspring will only inherit a small portion of his wealth, they’ll still be getting the very significant amount of $10 million.

Dannielynn Hope Marshall Birkhead

3. Dannielynn Hope Marshall Birkhead – Net Worth: $10 Million

Up next on our rundown of the world’s richest teens is Dannielynn Hope Marshall Birkhead. As the daughter of the late Playboy model Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead, Dannielynn had a rocky start to life. Not only was her birth mired by questions surrounding her paternity (after paternity claims were logged by Howard K. Stern, Larry Birkhead, Smith’s bodyguard Alexander Denk, and Frederic von Anhalt, a DNA test finally determined that Birkhead was the father), her half-brother, Daniel Wayne Smith, died within just 3 days of her birth. A year later, her mother also passed away from a drug overdose. Since then, she’s put her past behind her to star in a successful modeling campaign with Guess, and appeared in various reality TV shows.

Akshay Ruparelia

2. Akshay Ruparelia – Net Worth: $12 million

At just 19 years old, British entrepreneur Akshay Ruparelia has already created a multi-million-dollar business. In 2016, he launched an online estate agency that allowed new homeowners to buy with the lowest amount of commission possible. As Mogulpedia notes, the enterprising youngster was still studying for his A levels at the time of launching the business, but the dual pressures of studying for exams and turning his idea into a profitable operation clearly proved no barrier to success. Today, Ruparelia is worth a massive $12 million.

Valentina Paloma Pinault

1. Valentina Paloma Pinault – Net Worth $12 million

The daughter of one of the world’s richest couples was almost guaranteed to make an appearance on our list. Valentina Paloma Pinault is the only child of movie star Salma Hayek and multibillionaire executive Francois-Henri Pinault, a status that makes her the sole heir to the couple’s combined fortune of $7.1 billion. While it may be some time before she inherits the full set of family jewels, she’s already sitting pretty on $12 million.
