Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: Mark Zuckerberg

by Scott Edward Walker on July 6th, 2010

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

This week, we present Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder of Facebook and a brilliant entrepreneur (courtesy of Stanford University’s Entrepreneurship Corner).  In this interesting, three-minute excerpt (from October 2005), Mark discusses building and managing his Facebook team.

As a bonus video, we also present Jim Breyer, Managing Partner of Accel Partners, who briefly talks about the importance of Mark’s listening skills and his ability to experiment.  I hope you enjoy them.  Thanks, Scott
