Snapchat is facing a tough competition from popular social media network, Instagram, but when it comes to celebrating, the company has no rival as its CEO Evan Spiegel has done something very special for the employees.
Evan Spiegel spent $4 million(Rs. 25.6 crores) to give a massive new year party to the employees of the company in Los Angeles. Evan even arranged a special performance from Drake to surprise the workers of Snapchat.
Evan was planning this party for long. He rented out Microsoft Theater and every venue facing Microsoft Square which included Katsuya, Tom’s Urban, Lucky Strike, Conga Room and Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill.
