Biography

Life

Mark Dietrich Mateschitz was born in May 1992, the only child of Dietrich Mateschitz and Anita Gerhardter.
He attended high school in Salzburg and later pursued a degree in business administration at Salzburg University of Applied Sciences.
During his early life, Mateschitz maintained a low profile and primarily used his mother's surname. His middle name, Dietrich, was the only hint of his connection to his father.
In 2018, he founded Thalheimer Heilwasser GmbH, his own drinks company, specializing in beer and lemonade crafted with water from one of Austria's oldest springs.

Career and Business Ventures

Mateschitz owns 49% of Red Bull GmbH, the renowned energy-drink company co-founded by his father, Dietrich Mateschitz.
In 2022, he inherited his father's 49% stake in Red Bull GmbH after his father's passing, prompting him to step down as an employee and focus on his role as a shareholder.

Philanthropy and Board Positions

Mateschitz is actively involved in philanthropy and sits on the board of the Red Bull Wings for Life Foundation.
The Red Bull Wings for Life Foundation is primarily managed by his mother.

Mark Mateschitz is very wealthy, but what's stopping you from reaching that same level of success? As summarized in our five fundamental rules to wealth building, becoming wealthy in a modern capitalist economy is not complicated. There's actually only three variables:

  1. Your starting capital
  2. Your earnings after expenses
  3. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of your savings

Most people start with zero or very little, so if you weren't born into wealth, don't fret! The majority of the fortunate folks listed in our Grizzly Bulls’ Billionaires Index came from middle class or lower backgrounds. The most distinguishing characteristic of the group is their ability to consistently earn a high CAGR on their savings.

Every billionaire has a unique strategy to achieve high CAGR. For Mark Mateschitz, Red Bull is the primary source. Whether you choose to invest your savings in your own businesses or the businesses of others is not as important. The salient piece of the puzzle is ensuring that your hard-earned savings are generating sufficient CAGR to reach your long term goals.

Most people simply invest their money in index funds and call it a day. There's nothing wrong with this approach, but it guarantees relative mediocrity. To achieve greatness, you need to invest your money to earn higher than average returns. In the long run, better investors will always finish ahead of better earners.
