Dustin Moskovitz is the co-founder of Facebook and Asana,a new company founded by him but did not reach the same heights as Facebook. The technical side of Facebook was under his supervision.As he was a leader in the technical staff, he was responsible for the company's mobile strategy and development. Dustin was involved in the growth and inception of the site from the time it came into existence. In 2011 he was ranked as the world's youngest self-made billionaire. He held a share of 7.6% in Facebook which has been liquidated with the announcement of the company's IPO.
Dustin as one of the co-founders of Facebook was a 6% owner of Facebook. He raised capital in 2008 and the entire company was valued at $50 billion. This valuation helped Moskovitz to get a paper wealth of $12 billion. In 2008 he left Facebook to form a new company called Asana. Next year he and his partner Rosenstein closed a funding deal worth $9 million for their new company. Earlier he had received $1.2 million from investors like Sean Parker.
Dustin does not live like a billionaire at all. When he formed the new company called Asana, he gave each of the engineers $10,000 to spend so that they can improve the equipment at their desks. Though not many details are available regarding his residence and the car he drives, reports have suggested that he is involved in many philanthropic activities. He donated a portion of his fortune to charitable causes. He joined Mark Zuckerberg to sign Giving Pledge, which is an initiative launched by Bill Gates. He believes in putting his money to good use and surprisingly is not tired of helping others.
Dustin was born in Florida and he attended Vanguard High School. He graduated from the IB Diploma Program. He then attended Harvard University for a couple of years before he joined hands with Mark Zuckerberg and moved to California. He started to work on Facebook on full-time basis. He was one of the four co-founders of Facebook. In June 2004 he and Mark took a year off from Harvard University and moved the operations base to Palo Alto. The rest, as they say, is history. He is presently in a relationship with Carl Tuna, who is a reporter for Wall Street journal.
