The Thiel Foundation was created by Peter Thiel, the billionaire investor
To date, companies that have been created by the Thiel Fellowship are worth more than $3 billion. That doesn't include Ethereum, which was created by Vitalik Buterin and currently has a market cap of about $50 billion.
The Thiel Foundation gives 20 young adults the opportunity to get ahead of the curve rather than just going to college. This year, the list of young men and women that were given the chance is very strong. For instance, Danel Ternyak, the CTO of "MyCrypto" is facilitating the transition to a decentralized society by bringing accessibility to Ethereum and other blockchains.
Liam Berryman of Nelumbo is developing a new materials platform capable of significantly increasing the energy efficiency of any refrigeration system. Those are just two of the 16 young adults who are doing good work and innovating their ideas into the tech industry. Here are the four recipients Thiel Awards winners who are developing more groundbreaking technologies with their own companies.
