As the CEO of the publicly-traded company, Slootman owns 5.3 million shares of Snowflake. The stake alone is worth a hefty $1.4 billion.
Slootman said that his choice to get on board with Snowflake wasn’t about the money. Also, his fresh billionaire status doesn’t mean much to him. In an interview with Forbes, Slootman said, “I crawled on the shore in this country, literally with 100 bucks in my pockets, and I’m not exaggerating when I say that. I’m a huge bull on the opportunity in this country, I just can’t help it because I’ve lived that.”
