Tech is a very important part of our lives today. It is such a popular industry and it is always advancing. It is a good idea to be ahead of the curve when it comes to technology as it has been picking up steam for the last 25 years and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. In fact many celebrities are realizing this, too and have begun investing in the tech world.

WatchMojo decided to create a list discussing the Top 10 celebrity tech investors. WatchMojo always creates the best lists and they are always entertaining. They do their research and give great explanations for their picks. It is fun to create your own list and see how it stacks up to their list!

To start off, WatchMojo discusses their 10th spot belonging to Robert Downey Jr. This comes as no surprise having in mind that Robert Downey Jr plays Tony Stark, also known as Iron Man. Tony Stark’s character is very much involved in tech, so maybe this inspired him to get involved in this surging industry. He and his wife founded Team Downey in 2010 which is a production house. They finance digital media startups and have gotten more involved in different tech ventures!

Another person on this list that seems to have been influenced by a movie role, is Justin Timberlake. Timberlake had a role in the movie, “The Social Network”. This movie is based on the creation of Facebook, the social media platform. The is a very popular site and it is no wonder Timberlake decided to get involved, after seeing how lucrative it can be! He was actually involved with a team that later bought Myspace, another social media platform.

Another popular figure that appears on this list is the rapper Jay Z. He is one of the wealthiest rappers in the world and is a businessman, so it is no surprise he has been investing! Most people have heard of the music streaming site, Tidal. Jay Z is an owner of this site and it shares a landscape with Spotify and Apple Music. Music streaming is one of the most popular things out right now. All the music you need on the palm of your hand for small monthly payments. You can listen however long and whenever you want. Jay Z, being a musician himself, didn’t surprise us at all deciding to invest in this way. He has since increased the worth of the company by 10 times and has had other artists jump on board to Tidal! Jay Z has also invested in an uber-like app for jets. Most average people aren’t using private jets to travel but for those that are, Jay Z has you covered!
