The Founders chronicles a unique part of history that proved seminal in the way the Internet was used. PayPal one of the first FinTech companies revolutionised payments that enabled a commercial tsunami online. Elon Musk was ousted and in this third part in our series the somewhat reluctant Peter Thiel again takes the reigns at PayPal to transform it entirely into a payments company.
