Divyank Turakhia

Company:

Media.net

Designation:

Founder

Divyank Turakhia might have been born to a middle-class family in Mumbai, but he’s not your average citizen. The billionaire began coding at the age of eight and ended up founding ad network Media.net, a spinoff from India’s Directi group of companies, which joined forces with Yahoo! Bing Networks to help publishers drive advertising revenue. Turakhia eventually sold it to a Chinese consortium for $900 million, in the world’s third-largest ad-tech deal.
