A billionaire, in countries that use the short scale number naming system, is a person with a net worth of at least one billion (1,000,000,000, i.e. a thousand million) units of a given currency, usually major currencies such as the United States dollar, the euro or the pound sterling. The most appropriate way to contact these billionaire people who give away free money is through the organisation that they run. Get familiar with the website and look at all the programs on offer. Most of the time you will need to fill out an application form to see if you are eligible for any help.

But, before they were big names, they were simply a team that needed additional money urgently to pay their website development firm. They didn’t have the time to apply to appear on “Shark Tank,” and so took a shot in the dark. They emailed billionaire investor Mark Cuban, asking him for financing.
