The PayPal Mafia

PayPal was founded in 1998. Over the course of four years, its founders guided the online payments service provider to one of the biggest tech companies in the world, before being acquired by eBay in 2002 for $1.5billion dollars. The story of PayPal is certainly an interesting one, but it is after the sale to eBay where things get really compelling. Ventures of the PayPal Mafia charts the investments in a multitude of tech companies by the core group of PayPal founders.
