Forbes released its list of billionaires Wednesday, and, no surprise, many of these founders and CEOs call the Bay Area home. Silicon Valley attracts start-up companies like moths to a flame, claiming many self-made enterpreneurs like Larry Ellison of Redwood City's Oracle and the Google founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
This year's list had the most billionaires ever, 1,210, netting a total of $4.5 trillion. California boasted 88 billionaires, more than a fifth of the U.S.'s billionaires.
