Being rich comes with lots of perks. Seriously, you can do pretty much anything and everything on Earth if you have billions of dollars in your bank account. Individually, you can buy whatever you wish – be it a luxury yacht or a lavish car, you have it all at your fingertips. Of course, the perks of being rich are numberless, and indeed, you can use this power for good or bad. If it is the former, you can use your wealth to transform the world.
Wealth is by no means new to Boston. This city has attracted wealth and unmeasurable wealth for centuries. You can find highly successful entrepreneurs and influential people in every niche. Be it in the eCommerce sector or traditional physical business, Boston will never disappoint you. The old-goers used to say that you could be born in Boston and be poor at the same time. If you think about it today, you will figure out that they were right. Frankly, look around in this city, and every brick will leave you moved.
Take the celestial buildings of Boston as an example. Unlike many cities in the United States, this city is filled with sky-kissing buildings and classic architecture. What does that denote, you ask? Apparently, it is a telltale of great wealth. Unless a city is not wealthy enough, its architecture can not be developed either. Likewise, the infrastructure of this city is outstanding. Everything is in perfect shape.
Nonetheless, some rich folks in Boston still think what has been done is not done. Instead, there is a crying need for what they call “a massive transformation.” Not only at the infrastructure level but at personal levels as well. This means that these billionaires are not only looking to transform the city of Boston but the perspectives of its netizens as well.
Here are five billionaires who hail from Boston and are actively transforming the lives of netizens. At the same time, they are building a whole new city out of Boston. Let’s see who these figures are:
