Being able to rub shoulders with the planet’s über wealthy is a remote dream for upcoming entrepreneurs. But the latest Forbes billionaires list proves that it’s not completely impossible.

Today, we run through the top 10 billionaires to have started up a high-flying business within the last decade.
