What is Andy Bechtolsheim’s net worth? Andy Bechtolsheim’s net worth is $2 billion dollars. Born in Bavaria, Germany, Andy Bechtolsheim grew up largely isolated, and began experimenting with electronics to pass the time while he was in elementary school. By age 16, he had designed an industrial controller, the sale of which funded his education. After graduating from the University of Technology Munich, he earned his Master’s Degree from Carnegie Mellon University, and then began his Ph.D study in electrical engineering at Stanford University. While at Stanford, he designed the SUN workstation, and after partnering with Stanford Business School alum, Vinod Khosla, and Scott McNealy, the three founded Sun Microsystems. Bill Joy joined the team, and with the creation of the Sun-1, the company was off and running. By 1988, just six years after its founding, Sun Microsystems was worth $1 billion. Since then, he has founded or funded a number of other successful technology companies, including being the first investor in Google, Inc.
Andreas (Andy) von Bechtolsheim (born September 30, 1955) is an electrical engineer who co-founded Sun Microsystems in 1982 and was its chief hardware designer. He later became an investor, writing the first major check to fund Google, and starting several computer networking companies.
Bechtolsheim was born near Ammersee, in the German state of Bavaria. He grew up on a farm with the Alps in the distance, the second of four children. Since the isolated house had no television and distant neighbors, he experimented with electronics as a child. In 1963 the family moved to Rome, Italy and then in 1968 to Nonnenhorn on Lake Constance in Germany. When he was only 16, he designed an industrial controller based on the Intel 8008 for a nearby company. Royalties from the product supported much of his education.
As an engineering student at University of Technology Munich Bechtolsheim entered the jugend forscht contest for young researchers, and after entering for three years, won the physics prize in 1974. Bechtolsheim received a Fulbright Award and moved to the US in 1975 to attend Carnegie Mellon University, where he received his master's degree in computer engineering in 1976. In 1977 Bechtolsheim moved to Silicon Valley to work for Intel, but quit when they transferred him to Oregon the first week. He took a summer job at Stanford University and became a Ph.D. student in electrical engineering.
At Stanford, Bechtolsheim designed a powerful computer (called a workstation) with built-in networking called the SUN workstation. The name was derived from Stanford University Network. It was based on the Xerox Alto computer developed at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center. Bechtolsheim was a "no fee consultant" at Xerox, meaning he was not paid but had free access to the research being done there. In particular, Lynn Conway was using workstations to design very-large-scale integration (VLSI) circuits.
Bechtolsheim's advisor was Forest Baskett and in 1980 Vaughan Prat
