Kevin Rose is an American internet entrepreneur who has a net worth of thirty million dollars. Born February twenty one, 1977, Kevin Rose is famous for co founding Revision3, Digg, Milk and Pownce, as well as serving as co star and production assistant at giving TechTV's The Screen Savers. Right after dropping out of the Faculty of Las Vegas, Rose began coding software. At the age of nineteen, Rose's computer skills were so great he landed a job in the Department of Energy's Nevada Test Site, that he worked while joining the Faculty of Las Vegas. He dropped out of college his sophomore annum to work as a coder full time. Throughout the time of his as host of a cable show called Screen Savers, he created important connections with several of Silicon Valley's biggest players, including Apple computer system co founder Steve Wozniak. Envious of Wozniak's accounts of the days of pioneering the Apple computer, Rose went home to push close to the internet for fascinating tidbits of information that might be relatively unknown and was struck by the realization that this searching of the web was time-consuming and messy. And that have Rose thinking…maybe he could make a service which did this automatically for users…one which tapped the site's community to post and position content from bloggers and also news sites. All those stories that came out on the front page will symbolize the most popular ones of the day…and 1200 (from his bank account) later, Digg came into this world. The ambition of his for the site was, admittedly, modest and he was much more than pleasantly surprised when Digg took off to the tune of hundreds of a huge number of visitors a month in a year or so. A shrewd investor, Rose put money in to the early launches of Foursquare and Twitter. In July 2012 it was announced the property of Digg.com was acquired by a company called Betaworks for 500,000 and equity. Later that season he became a venture partner at Google Ventures.
