Top 8 Tech Billionaires Who Dropped Out of College

Dustin Moskovitz


Dustin Moskovitz was Mark Zuckerberg's Harvard roommate and Facebook's third employee. The two dropped out of Harvard and moved to California to work for the social-networking firm full-time; he was its first chief technology officer and then vice president of engineering. He left in 2008 to start Asana, a collaboration and messaging software company that is aiming at tracking "the collective memory of organizations." Moskovitz sold a 1% stake in Facebook, but vows not to change his life much. He bikes to work and flies commercial. He is newly-engaged to former journalist Cari Tuna. The two met on a blind date. Tuna is overseeing his philanthropic outfit, Good Ventures. Both are hoping to use the transparency and community of the Web to guide giving. So far they've pledged to anti-malaria, education, and poverty-fighting charities.
