We know in the state of Florida there’s a lot of wealth and if you’ve ever wondered, in 2023, who the richest billionaires are in the state, you’re about to find out.
Imagine a life where money is no object. Where luxury and extravagance are the norm, and where your wildest dreams can come true with the swipe of your ‘black card’. Welcome to the world of the super-rich. The other day I drove by The Boathouse in Fort Myers and there were some mega yachts tied up at the dock. I thought to myself “I would be very comfortable on one of those”. Ahhh, a girl can dream. And I’m sure some of these billionaires have more than one!
The United States is the richest country in the world and home to more than billionaires than any other country in the world as well. Being a billionaire is the ultimate dream for many people. Think about how different traveling, for instance, would be if you were super rich. Forget crowded airports and cramped seats. You could set off in your private jet to exotic destinations at a moment’s notice. And sipping champagne at 30,000 feet doesn’t sound so bad either.
You may wonder what kind of industries these billionaires made their money in. Really, it’s just a few: finance & investments, technology, food & drink, fashion & retail and media & entertainment.
I put together this same list in 2022, but it has changed slightly in the new year. Using data from Forbes, Stacker put together a list of the richest billionaires in Florida in 2023. Some are even right here in SWFL.
