How Did Mark Cuban Make His Money?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Mark Cuban has an estimated net worth of approximately $5 billion.

That makes him the 5th richest person in Texas and the 169th richest in the world.

So how did Mark Cuban make his money?

Shortly after leaving his job selling software, Cuban started a business, MicroSolutions. Cuban sold the firm in 1990 for $6 million.

Despite having enough money to retire early and enjoy life, the millionaire continued to build wealth. In 1995, he invested in a company with fellow Indiana alum Todd Wagner and started AudioNet.

The idea was to listen to the Indiana Hoosier games online. However, it grew and succeeded wildly, including streaming the first Victoria’s Secret annual runway show.

After being renamed, the company went public, and the stock reached a new all-time high. One year later, Wagner and Cuban sold the company to Yahoo for $5.7 billion in Yahoo stock.
