Alex Rigopulos and Eran Egozy  

Co-Founders, Harmonix Music Systems

The co-founders of Harmonix -- the developer of videogame hits Guitar Hero and Rock Band -- earned big paydays when they sold to Viacom's MTV Networks in 2006 for $175 million, plus a $150 million bonus. The two brands (Guitar Hero is now owned by rival Activision) have sold more than $3 billion; Rock Band secured the first digital rights to Beatles songs (take that, Steve Jobs).

College buds: The two met at MIT studying music; Rigopulos is CEO; Egozy, also a clarinetist, is CTO.
