The Founders: Elon Musk, Peter Thiel and the Company that Made the Modern Internet

Out of Paypal’s ranks have come three billionaires and dozens of multi-millionaires, including household names like Elon Musk, Peter Thiel and Reid Hoffman. Paypal’s alumni have built, funded and advised almost all of the billion-dollar-plus companies to emerge from Silicon Valley in the past two decades.

Today, every online video you watch and every internet purchase you make bears PayPal’s fingerprints – its inventions made the modern internet possible and are embedded in our social networks, our banks and our intelligence agencies.

This book tells the gripping story of how the so-called PayPal Mafia turned a scrappy start-up into one of the most successful businesses of all time, worth over $70 billion today. Full of fascinating characters and anecdotes about Silcon Valley’s biggest titans, The Founders also shows how its founders continue to shape our future today.
