Let’s get straight into it – Steven Bartlett’s quite frankly ridiculous net worth. His companies have a value of over £300million and alone he is worth around £50million. Oh, and just to rub it all in? He’s 29.

He’s the newest investor in the Dragons’ Den lineup, joining the other Dragons as their youngest ever.

He brings a wealth of experience from the social media, technological and brand building worlds. I’m so excited to see him in the next series.”

So, how did Steven Bartlett get so rich?

The majority of Steven Bartlett’s money comes from being the founder of Social Chain, which now has a market valuation of over £300million. Social Chain is a media company, founded in 2014, which soon became Europe’s fastest growing social media agency. Steven Bartlett dropped out of uni to start the company with his co-founder, Dom McGregor, and it grew to have a collective reach of over 200 million millennials across all platforms and global clients including Apple, McDonald’s and the BBC.

Steven has since launched Flight Story, a communication and talent platform that provides public companies with people, process and technology they need to build a retail investor community around their story. “We build your retail investor strategy and give you the talent, tech and processes to execute it,” the company website states. He’s also launched another company, called thirdweb. The website says it is a platform that “provides a suite of tools for creators, artists and entrepreneurs to easily build, launch and manage a Web3 project. thirdweb enables users to add features such as NFTs, marketplaces and social tokens to their Web3 projects without writing a line of code.”

Steven Bartlett also now has a Sunday Times bestselling book, Happy Sexy Millionaire, and is the host of The Diary Of A CEO podcast. His podcast has currently had more interest than ever – it was his interview with Molly-Mae which caused all the backlash with her comments on making money and working hard, and since then he’s interviewed people such as Matt Hancock and Fyre Festival’s Billy McFarland.

He’s been featured in Forbes’ 30 under 30 list and has awards at the Black British Business Awards.
