In May 2009, DST Global, founded by Yuri Milner, invested $200M in Facebook at a $10B valuation.
At the time, many suggested they overpaid and were crazy to pay this price.
And now we know how that turned out. Facebook IPO’d at over a $100B.
DST keeps a relatively low profile (which is remarkable given their recent fund is $1.7B), but after doing their diligence on The Future of Fintech Conference, they’ve decided to join us.
We’re super excited to announce that DST’s managing partner focused on fintech, Tom Stafford, will be joining us.
Tom and DST bring a unique global perspective to financial services disruption and have invested in a number of fintech unicorns and emerging unicorns including Funding Circle, Klarna, GreenSky, Lending Club, and NuBank among others.
