There are 1426 billionaires all over the world. This number is going to be increasing as the number of businesses are increasing rapidly. We made a point in choosing the right geeky billionaires from this list. We chose billionaires who are geeks and successful. I think that all these people are an inspiration for all of us.

I have got to know that doing a normal job in a company will no where lead you to become a billionaire. There is no billionaire who did job and became rich. To become a billionaire there is only one hot tip. It is to build a successful business and as the business grows, your cash flow and net worth grows.

These billionaires do dress simple. Their dressing is surely affordable to most of us. They don`t focus much on their dressing style or get up but they focus on their businesses. I did found out that these billionaires some what have created a trend in dressing among the SMEs and startup ecosystem. We saw that they like to be dressed simple yet look charming as the glow of success is surely seen on their face.

I hope that you will try out these dressing styles of billionaires. Dress like a Mark Zuckerberg or like Larry Page, it will be fun. Who knows that you may create another great company and become a billionare and join this list!
