Clearly, it’s never too early to start chasing success.

Essay.Expert recently compiled a list of eight rich CEOs under thirty, with their net worth ranging from a minimum of $3 million, going up to $7.9 billion.

Coming from different backgrounds, tech futurists to fashion and makeup gurus have proven that success holds no age barrier.

At 44 years of age, Elon Musk, the CEO and CTO of SpaceX, CEO and chief product architect of Tesla Motors, and chairman of Solar City has the highest net worth of  $7.9 billion.

Musk sold the code for his first video game for $500 in 1983, before founding his own company in 1995.

Evan Spiegel, at the young age of 25, is ranked next on the list, with a net worth of $1.5 billion.

The founder and CEO of Snapchat launched a photo sharing app, Picaboo (now renamed Snapchat), from his father’s living room in 2011.

Garnering third spot is Palmer Luckey, founder of Oculus VR. Luckey developed the initial prototype of Oculus Rift in his parents’ garage in 2009 and is now estimated to be worth more than $500 million.

Here’s the full list and background of the eight rich (and young) CEOs.
