Jason Hogg
Founder and CEO, Revolution Money
Age: 39

Hogg, a former special operations FBI agent and the son of a onetime Mastercard CEO, knows credit cards and security well -- so it's fitting that his entrepreneurial venture would merge the two. After leaving MBNA, where he started MBNA Canada in 1998 and headed its business development, he conceived RevolutionCard, a numberless, nameless, PIN-protected credit card that would ensure maximum security from identity fraud.

With seed money from Steve Case and other investors, Hogg founded Revolution Money in 2005. Today, the card is the fifth-largest network in the U.S. Since its debut, the company has added digital payments and money exchange services to compete with PayPal. Last year, AmEx took notice and bought Revolution Money for $300 million.
