Serial entrepreneur Noah Kagan is the head of the software development application AppSumo. He used to work for Facebook and Mint Software Inc. in the early days of both companies. He shares his business techniques and experiences on his YouTube channel. As of 2022, Noah Kagan’s estimated net worth is $45 million.
Noah was born on February 17, 1982, in the United States. He went to Lynbrook High School in San Jose, California. He started university in 1996 and graduated in 2000.
He then pursued tertiary education at the University of California, Berkeley. He studied for a degree in Business and Economics at the esteemed university’s Haas School of Business.
The young man graduated in 2004. But before he started his career after college, he was already doing some entrepreneurial ventures. He founded the website and newsletter, OkDork, in 2001. He still operates it to this day.
Kagan started working right after college. He served as a geography marketing analyst at Intel Corporation in 2004. Around this time, he also owned HFG consulting. Noah ended his gigs in Intel and HFG in 2005.
He then became a coordinator at CommunityNext.com for almost a year. He was hired by Facebook in 2005 to be a product manager but was fired for allegedly leaking company secrets. In 2006, he moved to Mint Software Inc. to be a director of marketing.
The would-be entrepreneur was the 30th employee at Facebook and the fourth employee at Mint. He left Mint to help found Gambit in 2007. However, it only lasted until 2010, when Noah created the online entrepreneurial tool AppSumo.
He made his first YouTube upload in 2011 to share the progress of AppSumo. In just one year, his software development app became a hit, and they were able to afford an office to run their operations.
The Noah Kagan channel continued to share business tips and Noah’s experiences. One story he told was how he accidentally became a crypto millionaire. He was initially hesitant about Bitcoin. But when he needed it to pay for an illegal Super Bowl stream, he bought some.
Kagan never expected crypto to become a major part of his overall fortune. These kinds of stories, along with practical entrepreneurial guides, helped him gain a total of 351,000 subscribers at the time of writing.
Net Worth and Earnings
It is estimated that Noah makes from $2,200 to $35,700 annually from his YouTube uploads. However, it is projected that this is nowhere near the amount of money he makes as the CEO of AppSumo.
As for his Bitcoin investments, he initially held $2000 in 2016. But after seeing its potential, his crypto investment summed up to somewhere between $60,000 and $70,000. As he claimed, it made him a million. Now, his total wealth is estimated to be $45 million.
Noah appears to be a very private person who avoids discussing his personal life in the public eye. However, it is known that he is currently based in Austin, Texas.
