GoPro’s Billionaire Founder Just Gave His Old Roommate $230 Million

By : Rebecca Knight |



I can’t remember promises I made yesterday, let alone years ago, but one dude has given his college roommate $230 million after being true to his word a decade ago.

GoPro founder Nick Woodman is a billionaire, and a pretty stand-up guy after returning 4.7 million shares to GoPro so his old roomie, Neil Dana, could collect on the 10% of proceeds Woodman received from the sale of the company’s shares when GoPro went public back in 2014.


That translates to roughly $229 million, and Dana, who was the first GoPro employee, and now the director of music and specialty sales at the firm, owes the administration team at the University of California at San Diego a massive thanks for sticking him in a room with Woodman, who now has an estimated net worth of $2.3 billion in case you were wondering.

Bloody hell.
