One of the co-founders of Facebook, Eduardo Saverin, founded the social media giant with Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz, Chris Hughes, and Andrew McCollum in 2004. It was his money which Mark used to upload Facebook to Google. Although, he was neither given any credit nor added to the profit list. His separation from Facebook was subjected to legal action with Mark dropping Saverin’s 34% ownership shares to less than 10%.
Facebook sued him for allegedly interfering with the business, which was countersued by him. Later the matter was resolved when both the parties settled with Saverin receiving a co-founder bio on Facebook and 5% stake. Since then, he sold more than half of his stake and invested in startups such as Qwiki and Jumio, which lead to increase his wealth.
