Who owns the Clubhouse app?

For the unversed, Clubhouse app is a highly-exclusive members-only social media app that is currently only available to those who are invited and as of now, most of them are celebrities. One simply can’t download it from the app store. According to multiple reports, celebs such as Oprah, Ashton Kutcher, Drake and Jared Letoa are on the app.  In Clubhouse, the users can enter into different rooms to listen or participate in a conversation. The “rooms” in the app allow the users to hop in or out of it any time but the only rule is that no one is allowed to record anything.

Clubhouse app was founded in March 2020 by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs Paul Davison and Rohan Seth. In May 2020, it had just 1,500 users, and was worth $100 million. According to the CNBC website, the LinkedIn profiles of both the founders say they started Alpha Exploration Co., the parent company of Clubhouse in 2020. If the report published by the website YourStory is to be believed, the Founders Paul Davison, a serial entrepreneur who sold his last startup to Pinterest and Rohan Seth, a Stanford alumnus and former Google employee, spilled the beans that Clubhouse was never meant to be “exclusive”.  According to the website, they said, “We are building for everyone and working to make it available to the world as quickly as possible. It’s not intended to be exclusive; we just aren’t ready to ship the general release version yet…we haven’t yet finished building the features that will allow us to handle more people.”

Speaking of Mark Zuckerberg, it looks like after Elon Musk, he seemed intrigued by the idea of joining the highly exclusive app. The news soon broke the Internet as a lot of users on Twitter speculated how he might end up buying it exactly what he did with WhatsApp and Instagram.

Speaking on the same lines, one user posted, “Mark Zuckerberg only came on clubhouse tonight to see his it works before he acquires it. $FB.” Another shared, “Mark Zuckerberg bout to make a copy-paste version of clubhouse on Instagram.” One posted, “Mark Zuckerberg is on Clubhouse. He’s probably scoping out the competition before he creates a competitor to destroy it.”

The next one said, “Coachella is known for the surprise guest appearances - Jay Z, Cardi B, Selena Gomez etc.. that happens once a year. Clubhouse guest appearances in the last 5 days - Elon Musk, Vlad Tenev, Mark Zuckerberg... this seems to be happening every night.” One posted, “Mark Zuckerberg just came on Clubhouse and pretty much broke it.

Really looking forward to where this is going.” Another added, “Hmm...Why is Mark Zuckerberg going on a competing social media network? Is he a silent partner? Normally he's trying to buy them not engaging.”
