Bhargava, who dropped out of Princeton University after a year because he was bored, created an innovative 5-hour Energy drink to solve the the world’s biggest problems i.e Energy. He says he has more money than he needs — about $4 billion more so he would invest in similar initiatives.
Bhargava has also built a stationary bike to power millions of homes worldwide that have little or zero electricity. Early next year, he also plans to distribute 10,000 of his Free Electric battery-equipped bikes in India, which he says will keep lights and basic appliances going for an entire day with one hour of pedalling.
He also says, “If you have wealth, it’s a duty to help those who don’t. Make a difference in people’s lives. Don’t just talk about it.”
