2. Nick D’Aloisio
Most of the other kids on this list have made immense wealth either from the entertainment industry or inheritance from rich parents. Not Nick D’Aloisio. This kid is an entrepreneur who made $30 million for creating Summly, an app that summarizes news articles and makes them into smaller reads.
This allows users to easily stay up to date with current events and news. Summly was named the best app in 2012 by Apple. This boosted its revenue and allowed D’Aloisio to sell the app to Yahoo at $30 million. He is currently in King’s College where he is working for Yahoo as a manager.
