Looking through the Forbes lists, we found that some of the most successful entrepreneurs, it turns out, are not married! Moreover, young men can boast not only of expensive cars, but also of a very high intelligence, determination and a non-standard approach to everything that surrounds them. However, many of them consider the institution of marriage to have outlived its usefulness, therefore, although they do not wear rings, they still do not refuse to raise their children. So read about the ambitious Russian billionaires in our roundup.
Pavel Durov, 36 years old, fortune 17, 2 billion USD
Perhaps every self-respecting lover of social networks knows this representative of the business elite. It was Pavel who created the famous VKontakte network, as well as the independent Telegram messenger. Agree, in order to come up with and implement this idea, you must have no joke abilities. So it is: Pavel is a classical excellent student, he successfully graduated from the Academic Gymnasium, then from St. Petersburg State University. The talented young man was noticed from the first years of study: with his successes in mastering new knowledge, he earned a scholarship from the Government of the Russian Federation, the President of the Russian Federation and three times - the Potanin scholarship.
Back in his student years, he distinguished himself by creating several non-profit, but very popular Internet projects. These include a library of electronic abstracts and a forum for scientific discussions. Over time, Pavel realized that discussing science news is too little for students, they want full-fledged communication on the network. Therefore, in 2006 Pavel and his brother launched the VK service, which became the Russian analogue of Facebook. Today it is the most popular social network in Russia; it is used by almost 72% of Russian Internet users. Since 2014, Durov has changed his place of residence, leaving the Russian Federation. Pavel has two children, but he basically does not want to register the marriage, considering it a relic of feudalism.
Deni Bazhaev, 25, fortune $ 750 million
This young guy only at first glance seems young for such a great capital. Moreover, the boy received a tasty morsel in the form of an inheritance from the founder and owner of the holding OJSC Alliance Group when he was four years old. His father, a billionaire of Chechen origin, Ziya Bazhaev, tragically crashed as a result of an aircraft crash. The brother of the deceased was engaged in managing the assets and taking care of the family of the deceased, and now Denis and his relative are doing business together. In addition, the young man is on the board of the Russian Platinum company. Since childhood, Denis grew up as an incredibly intelligent child, with the same success I declare long poems and add up ambiguous numbers. The ability for logical thinking and phenomenal memory as a result helped the young man to show an excellent result on the IQ test.
Already at the age of 12, this indicator was 149 points, while the average result of students in higher educational institutions in America is 105 points. It is not surprising that the family of a gifted child encouraged his abilities in every possible way, with an emphasis on education. Denis graduated from MGIMO, then was sent to the London School of Economics. It should be noted that the young man is in no hurry to advertise his life, rarely appears at social events, and his Instagram account is closed to strangers to the millionaire.
Andrey Andreev, 47 years old, fortune 1, 9 billion dollars
This child also amazed parents with his abilities from childhood. Andrey was born in the capital in the family of a prominent physicist and from a young age had extensive knowledge in this area. At the age of 10, his passion for radio electronics bore fruit: without a telephone, he could use the communication device he had invented to contact his friend from another area. Andrei himself chose the University of Valencia in order to get higher education. However, in the middle of his studies, he dropped out and returned to Russia to organize his first business. His attention was attracted by an empty niche - in those years computers and components for them were in short supply. Andrey created the Virus chain of stores, and after a while he sold a promising company profitably.
The second business project was the system for processing statistical data and web analytics SpyLOG. But even this project, after being brought to perfection, Andrey resold. A new idea was already spinning in his head: the creation of the Mamba dating application. Initially, this project was designed only for the Russian audience, but with the expansion of the boundaries, foreign brides and grooms also wanted to use the dating service. And Andrey created Badoo, which has become another successful business project. The entrepreneur has been living in London for about fifteen years, having received a second citizenship in the UK. When asked by journalists, he modestly replies that he is busy, and that he met his girlfriend not through his own services, but through acquaintances. However, it was not possible to find out from Andreev either about the name of the chosen one, or about plans to create a family.
Kirill Minovalov, 50, worth $ 850 million
His parents, who have ordinary professions, could not imagine that their son would enter the Forbes list and take 120th place among the richest people in Russia. At a young age, Kirill earned his first money by unloading boxes at a vegetable base. And at 20, his girlfriend boasted that a job at the bank brings her $ 300 a month. Therefore, the desire to become rich and independent developed in young Cyril into an active life position. Already in the nineties, he formed his own consulting company, and then, after graduating from the MIIT University, he became the founder of the Avangard Bank. He has rather tough business methods, but his business brainchild is now one of the sixty largest banks in Russia. The bank specializes in working with legal entities.
Several debtors transferred land plots and a malt house to the ownership of a financial enterprise. So a new interest arose for a successful entrepreneur: he began to engage in agriculture. Now the Avangard-Agro holding includes several malt plants in Russia and Germany, more than 400 thousand hectares of agricultural land, which allowed the company to take the seventh place in the world among producers of an important component for the brewing industry. Kirill managed to have two children for his 50th birthday, but he remains a bachelor. In between business management, the entrepreneur rests in the Alps, preferring skiing.
Dmitry Kamenshchik, 53 years old, fortune 2.5 billion dollars
Dmitry was born into a family of radio physicists in Sverdlovsk. Therefore, after school, I also chose an institute where they taught exact sciences - the Moscow Power Engineering Institute. However, after the army, he changed the direction of his studies and became a student of the philosophy faculty of Moscow State University. But even then it did not work out, and he went into business. Only in 2000 did Kamenschik receive a diploma from the Sociological Faculty of Moscow State University, and in 2003 he defended his Ph. D. thesis in economics. Together with his friend, he organized a company for air cargo transportation through the Domodedovo airport.
Subsequently, he had to head the management of the company. The successful activity bore fruit - the business grew, and its own airline with a fleet of aircraft appeared in the asset. A successful contract for a long-term lease of land under the airfield and the surrounding area for incredibly low money allowed the entrepreneur to become a leader. He now owns a 100% stake in the DME group of companies. According to some sources, the businessman has 4 or 5 children. However, he continues to be a bachelor.
The mysterious death of Igor Dyatlov's tourist group has been discussed for half a century. A huge number of articles have been written about that case, many television programs have been filmed and even a television series. But it is worth noting: the case with the Dyatlov group is far from the only one in the history of domestic tourism. And they are all associated with an almost mystical death of people
What happened to the 11 most successful domestic boy bands from the 1990s: "Tender May", "Hands Up!"
Despite the fact that the term "boy band" is clearly foreign, the phenomenon itself can not be called purely American, because we also have something to cover - the first boy bands were created in the Soviet Union and were wildly popular. Their creators acted on intuition and were the founders of this musical movement in Russia and the CIS countries, taking into account the mentality and other features of culture
Girls have dreamed of successfully marrying at all times and continue to do so today. Oddly enough, over the centuries, the basic criteria have not changed much. Both in ancient times and now, potential brides do not mind seeing a rich, healthy and successful person as their husband. Better if it is Maxim Galkin. Well, or another modest Russian millionaire. In Russia, noblewomen were looking for famous and monetary men in their circle, peasant women also had their own criteria. Read
Very often in Russia, it was not the young people who agreed about the wedding, but their parents. The expression "endure, fall in love" came from here. The bride was chosen according to the principle "healthy, beautiful, homely", and the groom - "a rich family, a big house, a lot of livestock." But, nevertheless, some girls had to fight off annoying matchmakers. What methods were used to show the unwanted groom that he was not nice, why they said that the bride was dead and what the girl's kiss meant: read in the article
Celibacy among the peasantry was not welcomed. The presence of a family, as it was believed in the Moscow state for many centuries in a row, is a sign of decency and maturity of a person. The opinion of unmarried men was not taken into account either in the family or at the gathering. And the old maidens could not be present in the same room with the woman in labor and at the wedding table. But unmarried women were actively involved in funeral rites
