#14 - Andrew Mason

Andrew Mason

At 28, Andrew D. Mason was the founder and CEO of Groupon, a Chicago-based website offering users deep discounts on local businesses.

On December 1, 2010, The New York Times reported that Groupon was the subject of a $6 billion acquisition bid from Google, which Groupon turned down.

Mason was dismissed as Groupon's CEO on February 28, 2013, the day after the company missed analysts' expectations for sales, and fell far short of the mark when it came to profit.
