Marc Benioff Net Worth: Marc Benioff is an American businessman who has a net worth of $3.2 billion dollars. Marc Benioff was born September 25, 1964 in San Francisco, California. He is the founder of SalesForce.com. Amid the backlash against technology companies in San Francisco, Marc Benioff has become a voice of compromise. City natives complain that the growth of companies like Twitter and Facebook are causing the cost of living to skyrocket and Benioff argues that tech firms should be doing more to give back. He's argued that current housing laws and transportation regulations have been "unfair" to long-time San Franciscans and has argued for corporations to set aside their equity for public charities. Benioff is doing his personal part as the namesake of the city's UCSF Children's Hospital. He pledged $100 million to the institution in 2010. Benioff left his position at Oracle Corporation to start Salesforce.com in 1999. It has grown into an enterprise software giant on an acquisition warpath. In its latest catch, Salesforce purchased email marketing company ExactTarget for around $2.3 billion in July 2013. It also acquired Buddy Media for $689 million in June 2012 and, months later, Canadian startup Golnstant for a reported $70 million. An entrepreneurial spirit since adolescence, Benioff founded his first company, which created Atari video games, when he was just 15. He has been outspoken of his support as an early backer of Hillary Clinton as she makes her push for the 2016 presidential election. In 2010, Fortune named Benioff one of the Smartest 50 People in Tech, as well as one of the Top 50 People in Business. The San Francisco Business Times named Benioff 2009 Executive of the Year, "for defying the fierce economic downdraft—and taking the lead role in the creation of an industry."
