Millennials have surpassed baby boomers to become America's largest population--and many are also generating serious cash. Although research suggests that the likelihood of children out-earning their parents has declined sharply, a number of Millennial entrepreneurs (those between the ages of 19 and 35, according to Pew's definition) -- have a combined net worth eclipsing $79 billion.

These are the 10 richest Millennial entrepreneurs in the U.S., according to Forbes:

1. Mark Zuckerberg
