10 Highest Followed People on Instagram

Even the highest-profile business executives follow inspiration on their mobile screens.

When seeking inspiration, it's common for many to turn to their carefully crafted Instagram feeds.

Those feeds might contain motivational photos and quotes from entrepreneurial icons like Mark Zuckerberg, Richard Branson, Tony Robbins, Arianna Huffington, or Daymond John.

But who does Mark Zuckerberg follow himself for daily encouragement?

Using a new app called Being, which pulled from Instagram's API to render those (publicly-available) accounts onto your very own screen, Inc. parsed the top celebrities that some of the most successful entrepreneurs are following. Being, it's worth noting, is currently defunct, as founder Adam Mashaal claims he lost access to Instagram's API last week on Thursday.

Some of the accounts -- including "Texts From Your Ex," or high-end exotic watch companies -- might surprise you.

Here's who the most successful entrepreneurs are following on Instagram:

Mark Cuban

The celebrity investor only follows 94 accounts on Instagram, including the humorous "Text From Your Ex," which publishes screen shots of iPhone messages from former paramours.

Other notable names were Mayor Mike Rawlings of Dallas, Texas, where Cuban lives and works, along with the Dallas Mavericks, the American professional basketball team that he owns.

Elon Musk

The famed Tesla and SpaceX founder follows his wife Talulah Riley, unsurprisingly, along with celebrities such as Nora Kirkpatrick, and the entrepreneur and musician D.A. Wallach.
