According to Mike Arrington, the Samwer brothers, serial German entrepreneurs, have invested in Facebook at the $15 billion valuation. One commenter is saying the rumored amount is $60 million but doesn’t have a source. VenturebeatÂ has an articleÂ about another Samwer brothers investment from last year, a Twitter clone for Germany and France. I had never heard of the Samwer brothers but they had invested in a German Facebook clone that ended up selling for 100 million Euros.
Based on all the investments being made in Facebook, their stock would be soaring right about now. Their $15 billion valuation may be overblown but then again, they are capitalist pigs. How much more money can Facebook take in?
