Take a look at these tech movers and shakers who continue to make a name for themselves in tech;

They met through their mutual friend and started dating right after. They got married in May 2017.
Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner
The Harvard alumni Joshua Kushner had made it big in the tech industry proving that he is his father’s son. His father Charles is the real estate magnet.

He met Priscilla in college, and they are together since then. With his huge net worth of $63.8 billion, he is one of the most powerful tech leaders today and Chan supported him every step for the way. They co-founded a philanthropical organization named Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to help in the field of health, science and education, as they both know how important it is to give back to society and they are doing it right.
Serena Williams and Alex Ohanian

They got married in 1994 and three decades later they have a business empire and three children. Theirs is a loving family who is inspired by Rockefeller family’s philanthropy efforts. They co-founded Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation which is one of the world’s wealthiest charitable foundation, interested in helping people who cannot get any benefits from governments. If there is any example of how one should live a life full of gratitude and humility, the Gates family is a perfect example where they have only kept a fraction of their $86 billion net worth for themselves.
