WhatsApp’s Founder Goes From Food Stamps to Billionaire


See on Scoop.itJust Trending

The $19 billion deal to sell WhatsApp Inc. to Facebook Inc. started at Yahoo! Inc. more than five years ago, when Jan Koum became disillusioned at the way Internet companies were fixated on advertising.

Bonnie Sandy‘s insight:

What strikes me is tha  few would LOOK  at those  who are atarting up on the "food-stamP" end and consider INVESTING in them evn  now! 

The pressure to conform to "do what others do" to  Play a little, Sleep, hangout… Get a "Real Job" … many would prefer to play the lottery  rather than back a struggling person in a startup!
