Still, those hoping to strike it rich at a young age probably have the best chance in California, where 10 of the youngest live Tokyo escorts, and in tech, where 9 of the 12 found their pot of gold. Beyond the social media founders, techies in the group include Airbnb cofounders Nathan Blecharczk (age 35), Brian Cheskyand Joe Gebbia (both 37), who all debuted on The Forbes 400 in 2015.Dropbox cofounder and CEO Drew Houston (age 35) lands a spot on the 400 for the first time this year, following the IPO in March of the cloud storage firm he built with MIT classmate escorts Tokyo Arash Ferdowsi. Dropbox, which enables online file sharing and storage, has reached a market capitalization of more than $10 billion with 11 million paying users. Houston, who is CEO, owns 23% of the company.

The remaining three under 40s inherited their wealth: Lukas Walton, heir toWalmart WMT +0.59%; Scott Duncan, heir to pipeline firm Enterprise Products Partners; and Lynsi Snyder Tokyo girls, the 36-year-old heir to burger-chain In-N-Out, who is also making her 400 debut. Snyder, the youngest woman on The Forbes 400, owns nearly 97% of the 70-year-old fast-food hit.
Four of the under 40 billionaires who were on The Forbes 400 last year either aged out or dropped off the list. Robert Pera, founder and CEO of wireless equipment maker Ubiquiti, turned 40 in June. Beer heirs Andres Santo Domingo and Julio Mario Santo Domingo III are also gone: Andres turned 40, while his cousin Julio’s fortuned dropped to an estimated $1.9 billion, meaning he fell short of the cut-off. Rishi Shah (age 32), former CEO of healthcare advertising network Outcome Health, fell Tokyo nights off the list after Forbes lowered our estimate of Outcome Health’s value. He is the only person from last year’s Forbes 400 to now be worth less than $1 billion.
The board changes close out a wild year for Tesla, marked by Musk's erratic public comments that also sparked blogs a defamation lawsuit, the death of a Model X owner in an accident that occurred while using Tesla's semi-automated autopilot feature, big swings in the company's stock price, a massive push to boost Model 3 production as well as its most profitable quarter in company history.
