Description

Update

Zynga was founded in July 2007 by Mark Pincus and is named for his late American Bulldog, Zinga. Loyal and spirited, Zinga's name is a nod to a legendary African warrior queen. The early supporting founding team included Eric Schiermeyer, Michael Luxton, Justin Waldron, Kyle Stewart, Scott Dale, John Doerr, Steve Schoettler, Kevin Hagan, and Andrew Trader.

Zynga's mission is connecting the world through games. Everyday millions of people interact with their friends and express their unique personalities through our games, which range from harvesting crops to building your business franchise, to playing poker.

Through the company's philanthropic arm, Zynga.org is committed to transforming the world through virtual social goods. Zynga players have raised more than $6 million for several international nonprofits since Zynga.org launched in October 2009.
