Facebook Buys Whatsapp For $16 Billion. Entrepreneurs Worldwide Crap Their Pants

Best Buy is worth about $9 billion and has roughly 150,000 employees. Facebook just paid a 5 year old company with 55 employees twice the market cap of BEST BUY.

Hi gang,

ex

Well, you’ve heard that Facebook bought Whatsapp – which frankly, not many people stateside have ever heard of until today – for $16 billion. Let’s do math.

To put this in perspective, Whatsapp has 55 employees.  Facebook just paid about $291 MILLION per employee. Whatsapp is less than 5 years old.

Best Buy is worth about $9 billion and has roughly 150,000 employees. Facebook just paid a 5 year old company with 55 employees twice the market cap of BEST BUY.

Exqueeze me? Baking powder?

We can debate the merits of such a play or whether or not this was a good deal, etc, but here’s what I really want to say:

Entrepreneurs everywhere – sit down, shut up, and get to work.

Your dreams can come true.  Your hard work can pay off. You can change the world. And maybe, just maybe, you can get hit by a Thor thunderbolt of lightening made of liquid gold.

Seriously, get to work.
