1. Kylie Jenner, 23
First introduction to the world of Kylie Jenner came through the reality television show family Follow the Kardashians, where she was one of the two half-sisters Kim Kardashian. But Kylie took the opportunity and ran with it!

Later, the company was renamed the Global Cosmetics giant now Kylie. Kylie entrepreneurial success can be partly attributed to its presence on major social media. With a whopping 168 million users of Instagram, it’s safe to say Kylie is an influencer, and is “influencing” people to buy her makeup all the way to the bank. Aged only 23, Kylie is the youngest billionaire in the world. She is also a mother, so I guess you (she) can have it all!
2. Alexandra Andresen, 24

However, Witzoe Sr. still has the majority of the company and is the giver of operations daily. This means that Witzoe Jr. is free to use his wealth in that companies that wish to invest.
