In November 2005, venture firm Sequoia Capital invested an initial $3.5 million;[5] additionally, Roelof Botha, partner of the firm and former CEO of PayPal, joined the YouTube board of directors.

The first YouTube video was titled Me at the zoo, and shows co-founder Jawed Karim (YouTube Name “jawed”) at the San Diego Zoo.[7] The video was uploaded on April 23, 2005. You can see it above.
