Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter and of the popular payments platform Square, has just donated 28% of his fortune to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
He has established the fund Start Small LLC and has invested $1B in it, about 28% of his fortune.
He has said through his official Twitter account:
I’m moving $1B of my Square equity (~28% of my wealth) to #startsmall LLC to fund global COVID-19 relief. After we disarm this pandemic, the focus will shift to girl’s health and education, and UBI. It will operate transparently, all flows tracked here: https://t.co/hVkUczDQmz— jack (@jack) April 7, 2020
Dorsey has decided to make this important donation in spite of the fact that Twitter's income forecasts are not too optimistic.
The company said in late March in a report presented to investors that "although the short-term financial impact of this pandemic is rapidly evolving and difficult to measure," based on the data available at the time, the company's expected revenues for January-March were "slightly lower" than those recorded during the same period last year.
