Michael Dell's nepo babies: How the family of the billionaire computer mogul is making moves in the tech industry

Jan 11, 2023

Dell Michael Dell is one of the most notable tech entrepreneurs from the Lone Star State. He founded his PC company in 1984 while studying at the University of Texas at Austin, and since then the company has grown to become one of the largest technology companies in the world, with a market cap of $30 billion. Forbes estimates that Michael Dell has a net worth of more than $50 billion, making him among the 25 richest people on the planet. Dell and his wife, Susan, raised their family in Austin long before it was dubbed the next big tech hub. Far from the bubble of Silicon Valley, their four children — Alexa, Zachary, Juliette, and Kira — have mostly avoided the scrutiny that the children of other billionaire tech moguls, like Eve Jobs and Jennifer Gates , have faced. But they still count as "nepo babies." The term — popularized by a New York magazine story published last month on the nepo babies of Hollywood — refers to children and family members who climbed the ranks of their respective industries with help from family connections. Nepotism also exists in tech, and several of Dell's close family members followed in his footsteps, working in the tech world and likely cashing in on their famous last name at various points in their careers. None of Dell's family members, nor Dell's investment firm, MSD Capital, immediately responded to Insider's request for comment. Meet Dell's four children and his brother, Adam Dell, and see how their connections gave them a leg up. Adam Dell Domain Money Michael Dell's younger brother, Adam Dell, has worn many hats in the investing and tech world. Adam Dell started his career as a lawyer, but in 2000, at 30, he launched a venture-capital fund, Impact Venture Partners, with $100 million in funding. A Forbes report at the time said the fund counted MSD Capital, Michael Dell's private investment firm, as one of its major backers. Adam Dell's and his older brother's business interests crossed again in 2008 when Dell Inc. acquired the email-management service MessageOne — owned by Adam Dell's Impact Venture Partners — for $155 million. Because Michael Dell and other members of the Dell clan invested in Impact Venture Partners, it was a family win. A New York Times report indicated Michael Dell, Susan Dell, and their children's trust received about $12 million in total from the acquisition, while Adam Dell got $970,000 and Michael and Adam Dell's parents got $450,000. Michael Dell said he'd donate his family's proceeds from the MessageOne deal to charity. After the MessageOne deal, Adam Dell launched a personal-finance app, Clarity Money, which Goldman Sachs later acquired . Adam Dell was a partner at Goldman until 2021. Last year Adam Dell started Domain Money, a platform for investing in stocks and cryptocurrencies. The startup has raised $33 million so far. According to Crunchbase , investors include two friends of Michael Dell's: the Salesforce founder Marc Benioff and the Palantir cofounder Joe Lonsdale. Kira Dell Stefanie Keenan/WireImage Kira Dell, Michael and Susan's oldest child, has strayed the farthest from the family business. After graduating from Vassar, Kira Dell worked as a teacher for several years. She then worked in product management at several social-justice-focused companies, including a nonprofit called Endeavor and a "social care technology" company called Findhelp. Alexa Dell Frazer Harrison/Getty Images In 2012, Alexa Dell, the second oldest of the Dell children, made headlines when, at 18, she posted a photo on Instagram of her brother, Zachary, on the family's private plane "en route to Fiji." The photo went viral on the Tumblr blog Rich Kids of Instagram, and their father's security detail had her account suspended for safety reasons, she told Insider in 2018. In 2014, Alexa Dell was named in the sexual-harassment case brought against Tinder by Whitney Wolfe Herd, the former Tinder executive and Bumble cofounder. The complaint identified Alexa Dell as a confidante of Herd's and included text messages showing the two talking about Herd's problems with Tinder's cofounder Justin Mateen. In 2016 she joined Bumble — based in her hometown of Austin — as a company advisor and branding consultant. When Alexa Dell was 24, she got engaged to the real-estate investor Arshia Harrison Refoua, who proposed with a ring estimated to be worth $3 million. Juliette Dell
