#startupschool notes: Mark Zuckerberg, Founder, Facebook

marks early coding project
Why did facebook win? There focus on real world identity and people
It didn’t have to be a college platform
Someone else is always going to have more resources than you
Determination is what Zuck has to lead facebook
You are going to make mistakes just don’t give up
Learn as much as you can as a founder, especially before signing anything
Hire people you learn from
Make decisions as a team
Have a goal to make it a good company as soon as possible
People want to learn about people
Everyday there will be tons to do but each day pick the one thing that matters.
Lockdown: everyone focuses
Marks take serious about connecting everyone
