Yes, you read it right. Indeed Mark Zuckerberg is not the youngest billionaire in the world.
Facebook’s 3rd employee, Dustin Moskovitz is the one who reached the billion mark faster than Zuckerberg. If you’re wondering how an employee could climb ladder to the top, then here is how he did,
In fact, Dustin Moskovitz is one of the four co-founders of Facebook. He is just 8 days younger than his friend, Mark Zuckerberg. Though both reached the mark at almost the same time(being business partners) but Maskovitz’s age made him the youngest billionaire.
Presently, his net wealth stands at $7.6 billion as compared to Mark Zuckerberg who is at $13.6 billion.
Most people know Zuckerberg as the youngest billionaire but its false. Mark Zuckerberg was born on 14th May, while Moskovitz was born on 20th May 1984. They both dropped out of Harvard to start their own company, The Facebook which later became just ‘Facebook’.
Moskovitz was with Facebook till 2008 as CTO(Chief Technology Officer) but left the company to start his own firm called as ‘Asana’, a sofware company that allows companies and individuals to better collaborate. Zuckerberg, on the other hand, continued as CEO of Facebook.
