Pierre Omidyar is a famous Philanthropist / economist and is a well known Iranian-American entrepreneur whose net worth is $6.2 billion. Pierre Omidyar is also the founder of the E-bay auction site and reached his net worth through years of financial investments and internet ventures. He began his road to success over 20 years ago. He was born in Paris France. His net worth should come as no surprise to those who know about the enormous success that eBay has seen - it's one of the only websites to emerge from the "dot com bubble" that is still a thriving and successful business today. He was 28 years old when he wrote the computer code that would eventually become eBay. At that time, the program went by the name of "Auction Web," and was hosted on a site he had created for information on the ebola virus! The oft repeated story of eBay having been started in order for Omidyar's wife to trade Pez dispensers was actually a clever myth created by eBay's public relations department, and does not actually reflect the reality of the situation. Besides eBay, Omidyar has been involved in several other projects, most recently a Hawaiian news service called Civil Beat. Omidyar is also a well-known philanthropist, having started an organization by the name of "Omidyar Network" which has been billed as a "philanthropic investment firm dedicated to harnessing the power of markets to create opportunity for people to improve their lives."
Pierre Morad Omidyar (Persian:??? ???? ???????,born June 21, 1967) is a French-born American entrepreneur and philanthropist, who is the founder and chairman of the eBay auction site. Omidyar and his wife Pam are well-known philanthropists who founded Omidyar Network in 2004 in order to expand their efforts beyond non-profits to include for-profits and public policy.
Omidyar was born in Paris, France to Iranian immigrant parents who had been sent by his grandparents to attend university there. His mother Elahe Mir-Djalali Omidyar(Persian:???? ???????? ???????), who did her doctorate in linguistics at the Sorbonne, is herself a well-known academic. His father was a Iranian surgeon. The family moved to the US when Omidyar was six.
Omidyar was 28 when he sat down over a long holiday weekend to write the original computer code for what eventually became an internet superbrand -- the auction site eBay. The site was launched on Labor Day, Monday, September 4, 1995, as "Auction Web"; it was hosted on a site Omidyar had created for information on the ebola virus. The word 'eBay' was made up on the fly by Omidyar when he was told that his first choice for his web site, 'echobay,' had already been registered. Not wanting to make a second trip to Sacramento, he came up with 'eBay.' The frequently repeated story that eBay was founded to help Omidyar's fiancee trade Pez candy dispensers was fabricated by a public relations manager in 1997 to interest the media. This was revealed in Adam Cohen's 2002 book and confirmed by eBay. Auction Web was later renamed "eBay". The service was free at first, but started charging in order to cover internet service provider costs.
Jeffrey Skoll joined the company in 1996. In March 1998, Meg Whitman was brought in as President and CEO and continued to run the company until January 2008 when she announced her retirement. In September 1998, eBay launched a successful public offering, making both Omidyar and Skoll billionaires. As of July
