Elevation Partners stake valued at $975 million
Although he might be best known as the voice behind iconic hits like Sunday Bloody Sunday and Where the Streets Have No Name, U2 singer Bono is proving to be a top notch investor.

Dating back to 2009, private equity firm Elevation Partners made several investments in Facebook, valued at about $210 million. However, thanks to Facebook’s meteoric rise, the stake is now valued at about $975 million, more than four times its original worth in just under two years.
