Mark Zukerberg Makes Instagram Founders Multi-Millionaire

When the founder of Instagram, Kevin Systrom, turned down a job at Facebook 8 years ago, little did he know that he will soon become a shareholder at the same company.

On Monday, Facebook announced it has acquired Instragram in a deal worth $1 billion which will be paid for in cash and Facebook Stock. Kevin Systrom stands to pocket an estimated windfall of $400 million, while is co-founder Mike Krieger will earn $100 million.

Other 11 employees will share $100 million, in the photo-sharing app company, while the rest $400 million will be converted to Facebook stocks.

Do you wish to know what made the difference here? Good Education! Good Education!! Good Education!!! The founders of this company are Stanford University graduates, and schools like these have always turn out world-class moguls.
