Biography

Early Life and Career

Dustin Moskovitz was born on 1984 in Gainesville, Florida.
After high school, he studied economics at Harvard University, joining Mark Zuckerberg and Chris Hughes in Palo Alto in June 2004 to work on Facebook.
At Facebook, he served as the chief of technology and later as the vice president of engineering, overseeing the initial architecture and leading the technical team.
In 2008, Moskovitz left Facebook to co-found 'Asana' with Justin Rosenstein, a move that contributed significantly to his net wealth.
He is also the primary and largest investor in 'Path,' a mobile sharing site developed by David Morin.

Business

Under Moskovitz's leadership, 'Asana' has become one of the world's most trusted workflow and project management software programs.
Asana, with over 140,000 businesses as clients, experiences rapid growth, adding an estimated 10,000 users each month.
Top-name clients include Dropbox, Airbnb, and Uber.

Philanthropy and Sponsorship

In 2011, Moskovitz and his then-fiancée, Cari Tuna, launched 'Good Ventures,' a philanthropic organization.
Good Ventures formed a partnership with 'GiveWell' in 2012, leading to the creation of the 'Open Philanthropy Project.'
The Open Philanthropy Project focuses on determining the most effective ways to utilize and disburse large fortunes for maximum impact.
To date, the organization has given over $40 million in grants to charitable organizations and projects and donated over $100 million in funds to various causes.
Grants and donations have been directed to organizations like Against Malaria Foundation, Schistosomiasis Control Initiative, Deworm the World, and GiveDirectly.
Moskovitz and Tuna, the youngest couple to sign the Bill Gates and Warren Buffett Giving Pledge, prioritize global initiatives to eradicate diseases.

Dustin Moskovitz is very wealthy, but what's stopping you from reaching that same level of success? As summarized in our five fundamental rules to wealth building, becoming wealthy in a modern capitalist economy is not complicated. There's actually only three variables:

  1. Your starting capital
  2. Your earnings after expenses
  3. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of your savings

Most people start with zero or very little, so if you weren't born into wealth, don't fret! The majority of the fortunate folks listed in our Grizzly Bulls’ Billionaires Index came from middle class or lower backgrounds. The most distinguishing characteristic of the group is their ability to consistently earn a high CAGR on their savings.

Every billionaire has a unique strategy to achieve high CAGR. For Dustin Moskovitz, Facebook is the primary source. Whether you choose to invest your savings in your own businesses or the businesses of others is not as important. The salient piece of the puzzle is ensuring that your hard-earned savings are generating sufficient CAGR to reach your long term goals.

Most people simply invest their money in index funds and call it a day. There's nothing wrong with this approach, but it guarantees relative mediocrity. To achieve greatness, you need to invest your money to earn higher than average returns. In the long run, better investors will always finish ahead of better earners.
