Worth keeping an eye on.

Becoming a big-name tech CEO is no walk in the park, that much is obvious. Aside from the daily stresses of dealing with the operations of a massive company, little things are also highly capable of being amplified to huge proportions (think: Elon Musk's tweet about going public that cost him $20million USD).

However, there are also some pretty big upsides to being a globally known tech CEO. For one, most of the people at the top of the tech industry are really passionate about the causes they are pursuing and often about changing the world. 

Also, the money. 

With multi-million dollar salaries, tech CEOs have almost become the new rockstars with a rap sheet of mansions, cars, and other riches to match. Here are six up-and-coming tech CEOs worth paying attention to – because what might sound far-fetched now could be part of your daily life before you know it.
