Sergey Kolesnikov and Igor Rybakov (Russia)

The two billionaires, now 43, had a well-timed entry into the market, catching the start of a wave of private homeownership and government upgrades to Soviet-era housing. The number of newly built private homes in Russia almost doubled to 205,000 from 2002 to 2012, according to data from the Federal State Statistics Service, and new apartment units increased more than two times during the past decade to 838,000.

Technonicol has a 30% share of Russia's insulation market, according to Moscow-based Abarus Market Research. It derives 70% of its sales supplying repair work and the balance from new construction sales.

Tyler Dikman (USA)

Tyler started out making money like many kids, by mowing lawns, setting up lemonade stands, and babysitting. He even did magic shows for birthday parties, charging around $25 for a 30-minute presentation. Whn he was 10, he got his first computer, which he proceeded to take apart and study from the inside out. As he learned more about computers, he began repairing them for his teachers in the eighth grade, which led him to the revelation that he could charge others for repairs on their rigs. It wasn't long before he was charging $15 per hour.

He ended up landing a babysitting job some time later for the Vice-President of Merrill Lynch bank, Malcolm Taaffe. He was offered an internship by Taaffe, which led to a full-time job around a couple weeks later. Tyler was put in charge of computer acquisition, setup, training, and troubleshooting. At age 15, he started Cooltronics, a business that repaired computers, as a hobby. By hiring a few friends as employees and working long hours, he made it into a turnkey solutions company that sells, delivers, and sets up PCs for customers. His business now does millions of dollars in sales each year.
