Google alone, based in Santa Clara county, has generated several thousand stock-option millionaires. Rich-listers in the area include Google’s Sergey Brin Sergey Brin, with a net worth of $18.5 billion; Apple CEO Steve Jobs Steve Jobs, with $ 5.7 billion; and venture capitalist Michael Moritz, with $ 1.3 billion.
