What would you do with $ 3 billion in Cash?

Last Update: January 29, 2014

I was absolutely stupified when I read that Snapchat's CEO Evan Spiegel turned down a $3 billion cash offer for snapchat from facebook's Mark Zuckerberg...

$3 billion in cash is an enormous amount of money, and I thought to myself what I would have done in that situation..

My question is what would you have done if it was you? Reject the offer and continue developing Snapchat or sell Snapchat and take a $3 billion windfall?....

What a decision that would be..imagine all you could do with $3 billion? The amount of lives you could change and the amount of help you could give..

That would really be nice because I can do the things that I was not able to do.

I will provide a lot of training to the poor nations so that they can stand up on their own feet. There are a lot of good things to do with such money.

I am sure it is possible to get such money because other ahead of us have proved it already.

Good luck Kasparov

3 billion is a large number. I would be like Bill Gates give most to charity. Unfortunately, in most places the tax man will come calling to get his share.

This is an interesting point you bring up. I am sure Snapchat was started by a person wanting to improve something. We could be a snapchat in our business. Who knows what the future can hold for your online business. Something to consider.

Thanks for sharing. Debbie

Was that recently after they got hacked? I would have said yes if so.
