Winklevoss Twins Jump Back Into the Social Networking Game

Fresh off their L.A. mansion purchase the Winklevoss twins have made an $1 million investment into social network, SumZero. SumZero was founded by fellow Harvard University alumni Divya Narendra and Aalap Mahadevia in 2008. Narendra sided with the Winklevoss twins during their showdown with Mark Zuckerburg over the origination of Facebook.

SumZero is a clean-cut social network targeting investment professionals, allowing them to share ideas and research. Similar to Facebook's primitive days when an .edu email was required to join, Narendra personally reviews applications of individuals seeking membership on SumZeroThe site currently has 7,500 members from the "buy-side" of hedge funds, mutual funds, and private-equity firms.
