The mind-boggling reach of the so-called “PayPal Mafia” is well known in Silicon Valley.

This list seems infinite, and the network of connections is byzantine. But the folks at Fleximize, a U.K.-based firm that offers various funding options to companies, decided to try to chart all these pathways in one crazy, interactive graphic.
So, for the startup-obsessed among us, feel free to indulge and nerd-out as you explore and discover the wealth of links this remarkable group has established.
