10. Cory Nieves, 15: net worth at least $1 million (£769k)
Most kids have taken part in a bake sale and for six-year-old Cory Nieves the goal was simple: sell enough coffee and cookies so that he could buy his mum a car, because he was fed up of taking the bus to school. The biscuits were a particularly big hit and once he’d tried and tested his recipe to the point of perfection, Cory and his mum secured a commercial kitchen and the official brand of Mr. Cory’s Cookies was born.
Cory’s all-natural sweet treats have gone from being a local favourite to a nation-wide success, with a cookie delivery service that guarantees freshly baked biscuits straight to your door. They also received the back of a $100,000 (£77k) investment as part of the entrepreneur pitching show The Profit. The young baker isn’t planning to stick with cookies however, and he’s looking to put his company to the side before college so that he can pursue his interests in fashion.
