Mark Zuckerberg is one of the most powerful and influential people in the world; he’s the founder and CEO of Facebook, the biggest social network on Earth. During his reading time in January 2004, Mark decided to build a social network called TheFacebook, which soon after was in several hundreds of schools. The growth of Facebook has always impressed us and the way Mark Zuckerberg and his team have executed it is an example for everyone.
Mark Zuckerberg is not even an Entrepreneur in the way we mean it. In the past, we have met people like Elon Musk and Sean Parker who have kept funding startups and have really tasted failure. On the other hand, Mark is a guy that without even planning to start a business, built one of the most admired companies of this age. Neverthless, the experience you gain by being the CEO of Facebook is something remarkable, which he usually shares at Startup School every year.
Zuckerberg is a guy you should listen to in a different way. He’s not an Entrepreneur, he didn’t plan it, he didn’t want it, he just found himself on the boat. That’s why you should listen to what he says, because most of the time, great ideas come from humble people who love doing what they do. Which in Mark Zuckerberg’s case was “building things”.
