The world knows Evan Spiegel as the co-founder of Snap, Inc. - formerly known as Snapchat - one of the most explosive social media companies globally. He's one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world and possibly the most interesting. Who is Evan Spiegel, really? Behind his frat-boy good looks and savvy business sense, there is an undeniably gifted and sometimes problematic young man who has made headlines for his towering accomplishments as well as the less-savory aspects of his personality.
Spiegel was born on June 4, 1990, in Los Angeles, CA. He attended Stanford University, where he met his future Snapchat co-founders and where the ideas for the social media giant started to take shape.
In March 2018, Spiegel's net worth was $4.3 billion, but that total shifted dramatically that same month when Rihanna called the company out for promoting domestic violence through its advertising. Two days later, his net worth had fallen to $2.5 billion, proving that global value is just as flighty as the snaps themselves.
The future of Snapchat is unclear, but the stories you might not know about its young founder are fascinating.
