The 33-year-old billionaire threw 4.5 billion and gave his Stanford girlfriend a 150-person research institute: This is the most romantic “I love you” I have ever seen

The young rich man spent 4.5 billion to build a laboratory for his girlfriend. Have you ever heard of such a “rich” couple?

What is even more shocking is that they are just over 30 years old this year when they made such a major decision.

This couple is Patrick from Ireland and Silvana from Switzerland.

After reading their stories, you will believe even more: the most beautiful “I love you” all come from evenly matched love.

What kind of girl can make her boyfriend spend a lot of money?

Silvana is a veritable “super academic master”, and he is very successful in the academic circle.

She was born in a film family in Switzerland, her father is a director and her mother is a film scholar.

However, Konishi did not inherit his family’s film career, but chose to study neurobiology.

She received her bachelor’s and doctoral degrees from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and also went to London to study psychology.

After graduating with a Ph.D., Silvana did research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for a period of time, and then continued to work at Harvard University.

Silvana’s academic achievements are amazing, with published papers in Nature, Science, Cell and various sub-journals.

What kind of concept is it to publish papers in the above three journals?

The Hengqin New District of Zhuhai City issued a regulation in 2019 that “postdoctoral fellows who publish papers in Nature or Science will be rewarded with 1 million yuan for each paper.”

That is to say, if Silvana, who is in her early 30s, came to Zhuhai and settled down, she would be a well-off woman by now.

Such a scientific research genius is naturally a popular candidate for various awards.

In ten years, Silvana has won scientific research awards across Switzerland, Germany, and the United States.

Among them, in 2006, she won an award established by Intel in the field of medicine. As part of the award, an asteroid will be named after her.

This is really “too smart to be like a human on earth”.

Silvana’s youth seems to have been spent in the repeated cycle of learning-winning-winning-continue learning-winning again.

The life of a top student is really simple and unpretentious.

Such a talented girl, what kind of other half can be worthy of her? This once became the most curious thing for the public.

It wasn’t until the mysterious rich man who easily raised 650 million US dollars for Silvana appeared that everyone suddenly realized that evenly matched power is still the most important thing in love.

This young billionaire is Patrick, a business genius.

Compared with Silvana, Patrick’s talent is not inferior at all.

It’s just that, unlike Silvana’s brilliance in the field of scientific research, his talent is more manifested in doing business and making money.

In 1988, Patrick was born in an intellectual family in Ireland, and there are two younger brothers in the family.

At the age of 8, he took his first computer course at the University of Limerick and started to systematically learn programming at the age of 10.

In 2007, at the age of 18, Patrick and his younger brother established the first software company in their life, and since then embarked on a life like cheating.

A year later, they sold their wildly successful company to a Canadian business for $5 million.

This year, Patrick was 19 years old.

At the age of 19, some people are still worrying about the final exam, and some people have become millionaires.

Patrick and his younger brother are studying at MIT and Harvard respectively.

Harvard and MIT are among the top high-level universities in the world, and they are the “dream schools” that countless people desperately want to be admitted to.

However, geniuses are always so unique-in 2010, Patrick and his younger brother dropped out of school together, and the glittering prestigious school education was not so important to the two brothers.

After giving up their studies, they started their second entrepreneurial journey and founded their own payment company Stripe.

Facts have proved that Patrick and his brother were right in their bet. They have the support of many people, many of whom have already achieved fame.

Among the initial investment of 2 million U.S. dollars that the company received, there was a favor from the famous entrepreneur Musk.

As their careers flourished, the brothers were worth at least $1.1 billion by the end of 2016, making them the youngest billionaires in the world.

A few years later, the valuation of Patrick’s worth rose to 3.2 billion US dollars, or about 20 billion yuan .

At this time, Patrick was not yet 30 years old.

All in all, it is not an ordinary person who falls in love with Silvana who is “too smart to be like a human on earth”.

TV shows can’t do that.

In a relationship, if the strengths of two people are too disparate, there will be a taste of attachment. No matter how much you emphasize the purity of love, it will be powerless.

But when two people are evenly matched, personal experience and economic strength can compete with each other, then this story will be quite exciting from the beginning.

In 2005, Silvana and Patrick met in a competition—yes, looking for a partner in a scientific research competition, Xueba’s way of falling in love is so different.

This year, the EU Young Scientists Competition was held in Moscow as scheduled.

The competition attracted more than 120 young scientists aged 16 to 20 from 35 countries to participate.

In this star-studded competition, Konishi proposes a new treatment for urinary tract infections caused by urinary catheters.

The original idea came from her frail grandmother, who was plagued by bacterial infections and left an indelible impression on the then young Nishi.

Patrick invented an online programming language.

As a result of the competition, the talented girl Silvana won the championship, and the billionaire Patrick won the second place.

Silvana and Patrick, who are of equal strength, can be said to meet opponents in chess and meet talents in chess, and the spark of love is instantly ignited.

In April last year, the two achieved a positive result and held a private wedding.

Today, they are a promising Stanford professor and a young billionaire.

Patrick invested 650 million U.S. dollars (about 4.5 billion yuan) for Silvana to establish a research institute aimed at overcoming various complex human diseases.

Some people say that for a girl like Silvana who loves scientific research, the best gift may be a research institute that allows her to develop freely.

It was also joked that the highest level of financial freedom is “academic freedom”. After all, compared with daily appointments, eating and drinking, the millions of instruments and reagents in the laboratory are too expensive.

It is worth noting that there is such a sentence in the original intention of the establishment of the institute: “to free researchers from the trouble of constantly applying for grants and fundraising.”

That is to say, Silvana and other scientific researchers only need to work hard professionally, and Patrick will solve all financial worries.

It’s touching.

To put it in a small way, this is a man who does his best to give unconditional favor to the person he loves.

On a larger scale, scientists who are subject to insufficient funds have received more reliable support, and patients who have been plagued by diseases for a long time have another hope.

Russell has a quote that is particularly appropriate for the occasion. He said that the three driving forces of life are “the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and the irrepressible pity for human suffering.”

This sentence is the best footnote to Patrick and Silvana’s love.

Some people say that there is a love fairy tale in everyone’s heart——

“The person I love is an unrivaled hero. One day he will wear golden armor and holy clothes and ride colorful auspicious clouds to marry me.”

Regarding whether this fairy tale can be reflected in reality, many years ago, Professor Ariely of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology gave the answer with an experiment:

“Love is a precise matching game, the most important thing is to match each other.”

The so-called good match means that you have similar strengths and weaknesses, and your strengths and abilities are comparable. And a stable relationship must be the appreciation of the strong for the strong, not the sympathy of the strong for the weak.

This is the truth of the fairy tale, and it is also the view of love conveyed by the story of Silvana and Patrick.

The person you hope to meet is an unrivaled hero, an excellent partner like Patrick and Silvana, that’s fine, but first you have to be a good enough self to match.

If you are in full bloom, the breeze will come.
