He worked as a floor cleaner in a supermarket in California, and then in 2014, he signed a deal for 19 with a billion dollars selling his Whatsapp application to Facebook. He signed the deal, standing in line for the Food Stamp.

Two of the migrants on the TOP-400 list are women. This is Dagmar Dolby - a native of Germany and the wife of Dolby Laboratories founder Ray Dolby, and Ty Lee, general director of IT provider SHI International. Lee was born in Bangkok in 1958, grew up in South Korea and moved to the United States to continue high school. The daughter of an eminent Korean economist specialized in biology and economics. In 1989, she and her husband bought a software reseller for less than 1 million dollars, which was later renamed SHI International. 17 now has thousands of customers, including Boeing and Johnson & Johnson.

8 immigrants listed come from Israel. Mickey Arison, owner of Carnival Corp. emigrated to the USA from Tel Aviv as a child. His father, Ted, founded the cruise company in 1972, which had only the 2 liner. Arison turned the case of his father into the world's largest cruise ship operator. Arison's fortune is estimated at 9,4 billion dollars.

Isaac Perlmutter, chairman of Marvel Entertainment, left Israel in 1967, having only 250 dollars in his pocket. At first, he was selling toys on the streets of Brooklyn, and in 1988, he started managing the comic-book company Marvel, which was on the verge of bankruptcy.
