One of the worlds largest online payment companies PayPal had 13 co-founders who created billion dollar company. These all 13 co-founders are billionaires!
eBay bought PayPal in July 2002 for $1.5 billion. Generally, in startups, founders are not able to pay a high salary to their employees in the initial period.
Founders give their employees some stack of a company instead of giving them a high salary. That’s why there were 13 co-founders in PayPal and they became a millionaire overnight, however, the company was also a million dollar company at that time.
All these 13 co-founders of PayPal are called PayPal Mafia in the business industry.
Some of them are now entrepreneurs and investors. Some of them are in the highest position such are CEO(Chief executive officer) and CFO(Chief Financial Officer).
