More about Evan Spiegel

He met his Snapchat co-founders at a frat party

Evan Spiegel didn’t form the foundations of the Snapchat team at an electronics club or math department meet, but a frat party.

A party-loving member of Stanford University’s Kappa Sigma fraternity, Spiegel formed what would eventually become Snapchat with the aid of fellow frat brothers Bobby Murphy and Reggie Brown.

2. He’s a university dropout!

Joining the same club as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs, in 2012 Evan dropped out of Stanford and his course in Product Design.

Despite being a frat house favorite, he failed to graduate, quitting college just a few credits short of earning his degree.

The tech protégée’s exit wasn’t due to academic challenges, however, but a move that allowed him to completely focus on Snapchat and its growing success.

3. He’s currently the 931st richest man in the world!

Evan Spiegel, 25,  has a reported net worth of $2.1 billion.  This makes him the 931st richest man in the world.

4. His first app was a flop!

Despite Snapchat’s phenomenal global success – the company reportedly has close to 200 million users – it hasn’t always been sunshine and lollipops for Evan’s app efforts.

 5. He turned down $3 billion from Facebook!

In 2013 Evan Spiegel turned down a huge sum of money from social giant Facebook.

Zuckerberg’s team was willing to front $3 billion to acquire Snapchat,. Spiegel reportedly gave them the runaround before turning down the sizeable bid.

6. He got the set director from Friends to help redecorate his house!

Evan Spiegel is the son of two high-profile and hugely successful lawyers. When his parents divorced in his late teens, Evan originally opted to live in a new house with his father. Poppa Spiegel even handed over decorating duties – and a sizeable budget – to his son.

  7. Leaked emails show a different, unpleasant side to Spiegel!

Things you expect to be included in emails from the CEO of a multi-billion dollar tech start-up:

  •  Insightful thought on emerging markets and audience habits.
  •  Slight humility and an awareness of the fickle nature of the app market.
  •  An admirable determination to shirk the odds and succeed where others have failed.

Things you don’t expect in emails from the future CEO of a multi-billion dollar tech start-up:

  • Misogynistic jokes about getting girls drunk enough to sleep with you.
  • Anecdotes about drunkenly urinating on said girls.
  • Marijuana and cocaine-based brags and a general sense of sexism, homophobia and racism.

Unfortunately, Evan Spiegel has fallen on both sides of this fence in recent years. Admittedly the negative, unpleasant side of his email-based personality was leaked by ValleyWag years after the messages were sent during his frat days, but still.

Spiegel issued a remorse-filled apology for the emails when they saw the light of day last year, saying: “I’m sorry I wrote them at the time and I was a jerk to have written them. They in no way reflect who I am today or my views towards women.”
