We Study Billionaires - The Investor’s Podcast

Guest
On today’s classic episode, we study Billionaire Peter Thiel. Peter co-founded PayPal and he was the CEO until the sale to eBay in 2002 for $1.5 billion. After the sale of PayPal, Thiel started a big data analysis company called Palantir Technologies. He also became the founder of a venture capital firm called Founders Fund. With this firm, Thiel became Facebook’s first outside investor when he acquired a 10% stake for as little as $500,000 in August of 2004. Peter’s personal net worth today is about $5 billion and he remains active in numerous tech businesses.
