The 14 youngest billionaires of 2016

This year, there were two paths to making it onto The Forbes 400 before your 40th birthday: Start a successful tech company, or inherit a fortune from your family. The 14 youngest billionaires on The Forbes 400 are a rarefied group, making up just 3.5% of list. Nine of these 14 folks under 40 are tech entrepreneurs; the rest inherited their fortunes. After two years of expanding ranks in the under-40 set, the number of young billionaires on The Forbes 400 dropped by three this year. Half of the group lives in California, and together these young billionaires are worth a combined $113.7 billion.
