Pierre Omidyar-If you can’t find it on eBay, you probably won’t find it anywhere.  He’s taken a simple concept and turned it into a multi-billion dollar global marketplace.  Whereas years ago, you might have to know someone who knows someone who has a friend who can get you the car part you’re looking for, now you simply plug the information into eBay and you’ll undoubtedly be presented with multiple options from sellers throughout the world.  eBay has done more to open commerce between individuals than anything in our generation.  Pierre Morad Omidyar is a French-Iranian-American entrepreneur and philanthropist, who is the founder and chairman of the eBay auction site. He became a billionaire at the age of 31 with eBay’s 1998 Initial Public Offering. According to Forbes Pierre had a net worth of $8.5 Billion in 2013.
