Masayoshi Son was born in Japan and has an estimated net worth of $7 billion dollars. A businessman who jumped on the computer chip bandwagon early, Masayoshi Son patented and sold his first microchip while still in college for $1 million dollars. He is the founder and CEO of SoftBank Capitol and the CEO of SoftBank Mobile, which recently became Vodafone K.K.
Masayoshi Son (Japanese: ???, Korean: ??? Son Jeong-ui; born August 11, 1957 in Tosu, Saga Prefecture, Japan), born a Zainichi Korean and now a naturalized Japanese citizen, is a businessman and the founder and current chief executive officer of SoftBank Capital, and the chief executive officer of SoftBank Mobile (the renamed, effective October 1, 2006, Vodafone K.
