The Early Life Story Of Diya Narendra:
Dharamjit Narendra Kumar and Sudhanshu Narendra, Indian Immigrants, had their eldest son, born in Bronx, New York; named him Divya Narendra. Divya was raised in Bayside, Queens. Being a son of Doctor Parents, Pediatrician mother, and Geriatrician Father, Divya Narendra had been a genius since childhood. He graduated from High School in Flushing, Queens.
After that, in 2004, he completed his course and earned his degree A.B. cum laude in Applied Mathematics from Harvard University.
Later in 2012, Divya completed his J.D. and MBA from Northwestern University.
On June 17 in 2017 he married Phoebe White. Phoebe White is an American-born, belongs to a family of the well-known. Phoebe is daughter of a nuclear physicist at CERN, Sebastian N. White, and a Norwegian former professional model, Kristin Holby Darnell. Four years early, Divya and Phoebe met at a party, and a conversation of only a few minutes led to their love story and marriage.
Divya Narendra, along with his friend Alap Mahadevia, co-founded this company named, SumZero. Sum Zero aims to better and innovative businesses and investments ideas. It provides a platform for professional investors and business people to share ideas and communicate. This company is expanding rapidly, bringing together a large group of investing communities.
ConnectU, previously known as Harvard Connection, was a portal for social networking. Divya Narendra, along with his Harvard fellows, Winklevoss brothers, founded this portal in December 2002. In this portal, users can make friends, chat with them and also update profiles of their life stories so that their loved ones get notified about their lives. The site was relaunched and gained popularity. It was the online community at Harvard, but then it just discontinued.
In 2004, Divya Narendra and the Winklevoss brothers sued Mark Zuckerberg, father of FACEBOOK. Divya and two brothers claimed that Mark Zuckerberg had stolen their idea of social networking platform, and he has broken the terms of an oral contract with Divya Narendra and Winklevoss brothers. In 2003, when Divya and his fellows were working on a social networking platform, they met Mark and added him to their project. According to them, when we nearly did all the codings, Mark just vanished from this project, and on February 4, 2004, he launched his website ‘TheFacebook”, which was later named “Facebook.”
They also filed a complaint at the Harvard Administration for violating the university’s honor code. However, Divya and Winklevoss brothers then took this matter into court.
This case went on long for four years and during this time period Facebook gained popularity and marked expansion not just in United States of America but also across six continents. In February 2008, this fight then reached an out of court settlement with a value of 65 million dollars. Mark also gave a small percentage of shares of Facebook company to Divya Narendra, making him a part owner of facebook.
In 2010, David Fincher directed a film named ‘The Social Network.’ This film is about the founding of Facebook and the story of the fight between Narendra, Winklevoss brothers, on one side, and Mark Zuckerberg, on the other side. In the film, Mark Minghella portrayed the role of Divya Narendra. Divya Narendra belongs to Indian ancestors, while Minghella belongs to Italian and Chinese ancestors.
Well, Divya was also surprised to see this ancestor difference, but he was satisfied with the performance of Minghella. According to Divya, Minghella expressed the frustration very well that we were going through at that time. He was very good at dialogue delivery and pushing forward the total message.
No hurdle can stop a genius from reaching heights of prosperity and fortune. Divya Narendra is an example of this quote. Since childhood, he has been a genius since childhood, he gained remarkable success in SAT, and after that, he never stopped achieving success.
After issues about ConnectU and Facebook, after fighting legal matters with Mark Zuckerberg, Divya gained even more success and popularity; all credit goes to his hard work and dedication. He became the CEO and co-founder of a successful company named Sum Zero, which is rapidly enhancing. Divya is dedicated to giving the business an innovative future.
