Did Ram Make The Greatest Investment Ever?
Silicon Beat asks the question: Is the slightly under $200,000 1998 investment by Ram Shriram, now worth over a billion dollars, the greatest investment ever? Ram, who has remained a close ally of the company (people call him the "Google Guru"), earned roughly 5,000 to 10,000 times his investment. The numbers sure seem to solidify Ram as the gosh darn luckiest guy on the planet.
