Facebook, PayPal and the College Bubble: A Conversation with Peter Thiel

Join Peter Thiel, founder of PayPal and the first investor in Facebook, for a conversation about his life in entrepreneurship and his views on technology, college, philanthropy and more. Thiel, who was portrayed in the film, “The Social Network,” ran PayPal until it was sold to eBay for $1.5 billion. A billionaire because of his seed investment in Facebook, Thiel has become an ardent critic of what he calls the “college bubble,” and has paid 20 students $100,000 to drop out of school to pursue their ideas.
