Larry Ellison
NET WORTH : $129.9 Billion Dollars

American businessman and entrepreneur Lawrence Joseph Ellison was born on August 17, 1944, and he co-founded Oracle Corporation, a software corporation. He served as Oracle's CEO from 1977 to 2014; he is currently the company's executive chairman and chief technology officer.

As of November 2023, he was listed by Bloomberg Billionaires Index as the fifth-wealthiest person in the world, with an estimated fortune of $130 billion. Ellison is also known for his ownership of 98% of Lānaʻi, the sixth-largest island in the Hawaiian Islands.

Early Life & Education

Ellison was born in New York City on August 17, 1944, to Jewish mother Florence Spellman, who was not married. An Italian-American pilot in the US Army Air Corps was his biological father. Ellison's mother relinquished him to her aunt and uncle for adoption when he was nine months old due to illness. His original mother was not seen again until he was 48 years old.

Ellison relocated to the South Shore, a middle-class area in Chicago at the time. While his adopted father, Ellison, had selected the name Ellison to honor Ellis Island, his port of entry into the United States, he remembered his adoptive mother, Lillian Spellman Ellison, as being kind and caring. A federal employee named Louis Ellison lost his little fortune in Chicago real estate during the Great Depression.

After graduating from Chicago's South Shore High School, Ellison was accepted to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he enrolled as a premed student. He received the title of scientific student of the year from the university. After his sophomore year, he withdrew without completing final examinations due to the recent death of his adopted mother. He studied physics and mathematics at the University of Chicago for one term after spending the summer of 1966 in California. It was there that he also discovered computer design for the first time. After that, he relocated to Berkeley, California, where he started working for several organizations as a computer programmer.

Early Age & Oracle

During his tenure at Ampex in the early 1970s, Edgar F. Codd's research on relational database architecture for IBM had an impact on him. This white paper sparked the establishment of the business that would eventually become Oracle in 1977. Following its success as a database vendor for mid- and low-range computers, Oracle went on to compete against Sybase (founded in 1984) and Microsoft SQL Server (a Sybase version developed in 1989). This led to Ellison's inclusion on Forbes' list of the world's richest people.

When assembled, the shot resembled a cluster of grapes, hence the name. Grapeshot was used both on land and at sea. On firing, the canvas wrapping disintegrates and the contained balls scatter out from the muzzle, giving a ballistic effect similar to a giant shotgun.
