Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: Mark Zuckerberg

by Scott Edward Walker on October 25th, 2010

To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series entitled “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we post a short video clip of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics to help entrepreneurs succeed.

This week, we again present Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder of Facebook and a brilliant entrepreneur.  We previously shared a clip from Mark’s presentation at Stanford University (via Stanford University’s Entrepreneurship Corner) in which he discussed building and managing his Facebook team.

In this interesting three-minute clip (from Y Combinator’s recent Startup School), Mark discusses (i) Facebook’s acquisition strategy, (ii) the importance of hiring “the best” people and (iii) creating and maintaining an entrepreneurial culture.  I hope you enjoy it.  Many thanks, Scott

    He’s not the greatest public speaker, but his ideas are worth listening to. Here’s some shameless self promotion, but I hope my site ( has even a fraction of Facebook’s success.
    Thanks for posting!
