Amer­ica’s Most Suc­cess­ful Women En­trepreneur­s

Forbes Middle East - - CONTENTS -

More women are cre­at­ing new busi­nesses and amass­ing for­tunes than ever be­fore. As a re­sult, Forbes has ex­panded its rank­ing of the na­tion’s wealth­i­est self-made women to 80 ceil­ing crash­ers, one third more than a year ago. Each of these over­achiev­ers has blazed her own trail. Some, like the en­trepreneur­s be­hind poo-pourri and Thrive Causemet­ics, cre­ated fresh prod­ucts while oth­ers like Belinda John­son, airbnb’s chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer, joined tech jug­ger­nauts as they were tak­ing flight. Still oth­ers, in­clud­ing Rihanna and Kylie Jen­ner, have fig­ured out ways to mon­e­tize their fame, fans and so­cial me­dia fol­low­ers.
