Youth, Fame, Beauty, and Fortune: These Ladies Have it All (And A Few Who Lost it All)

Elizabeth Holmes

Elizabeth Holmes

Elizabeth Holmes is a 32-year-old who was once worth $4.5 billion. She dropped out of Stanford to start a blood testing company called Theranos when she was only 19. She used the money for her education to fund the company and made Forbes lists and headlines as a wealthy, self-made woman. Recently, however, she and her company have come under fire for their testing methods, and in a drastic reversal of fortune, her company’s valuation of an estimated $9 billion quickly dropped to $800 million. Although she has a 50% stake in the company, it doesn’t look like she’ll be left with much money after paying back investors, leading Forbes to downsize their approximation of her wealth from $4.5 billion to a flat $0 in 2016.
