The Internet has opened up a whole new world of exciting business opportunities for people of all ages. The age does not matter anymore, the main requirements are creativity and the desire to improve the world and make people’s life easier. The ten young people we are going to talk about today have one thing in common, that motivated and inspired them, and that is the aspiration to change the world and make it better.

Without more ado here is the list of ten young people who made the digital world look what it looks today.

1. Mark Zuckerberg is perhaps the most famous young entrepreneur of our time. While still at Harvard, he created the online social networking website Facebook, which currently features over one billion of active users. The site has had tremendous social impact worldwide, helping people stay in touch with their beloved ones, share common interests through groups and form new relationships.

2. Andrew Christopher Gower is a 29-year old British games developer and co-founder of Jagex Ltd., which is the UK’s biggest independent developer and publisher of online games. The company developed such well-known and popular games as 8Realms and RuneScape, winning affection of millions of users around the world.

3. Alexander Levin is the creator of a free image hosting website called ImageShack, which offers free photo and video sharing and image hosting. Anyone can upload their videos or photos there and share them with family and friends.

4. Jake Nickell is the author of a website called Threadless, a social commerce business project or e-commerce website that allows anyone to submit their own design which, if approved by the online community, will later be printed on clothing and other products and sold all over the world.

5. Greg Tseng along with another Harvard graduate Johann Schleier-Smith co-founded a social networking site Tagged Inc. at the age of 22. The site has 80 million registered users worldwide. It is designed to make it easy for people to socialize and meet online.

6. Chad Hurley is a 33-year old millionaire, whose fortune currently amounts to $500 million thanks to the famous video sharing website YouTube, which he helped to co-found.

7. Blake Ross and David Hyatt, aged 22, developed Mozilla Firefox, a free web browser for Microsoft Windows and Linux. The project brought the two young men about $120 million.

8. Andrew Michael earned his $110 million by virtue of a school project, which later came to be known as Fast Hosts, a web hosting company that provides such internet services as web and email hosting and domain name registration.

9. John Vechey is a name known across the casual gaming market. He co-founded PopCap Games, a leading American video game developer and publisher, in 2000 at the age of 19. When the company was appropriated by Electronic Arts in July 2012, the deal was worth up to $1.3 billion.

10. Matt Mullenweg, a founding developer of WordPress, a free open source for blogging, was nowhere close to being a technical prodigy in his youth. In fact, he attended a performing arts school, played the Jazz Saxophone, and then one day he created one of world’s best website and blog programs.

Building a business requires a lot of hard work, commitment and personal sacrifice. Undoubtedly, the Internet has made it much easier to start. All the above mentioned people owe their triumphant success to the dream that did not let them step back and inspired to achieve their goals.
