Mark Zuckerberg graced the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi in India last year while he conducted Townhall Q&A. In the process, he gave advices to the students, and revealed some of his best and awful experiences at Facebook in his early years. Check out some of the inside coversation-
Facebook answered numerous questions that were put up by the students in the townhall. On the importance of Internet.org, which is the talk of the town, Mark said that connecting India was very important and fulfilling the aim to connect the world wasn't possible if we ignore India.
A girl stood up on to ask him about his early years as the CEO of Facebook, the decisions he took and the difficulties he faced.
"Mistakes are part of professional life. I have probably made every possible mistake possible. You learn with trial and error. You shouldn't be afraid to make mistakes", he said.
"More than avoiding mistakes, it's important that if you do good things, it should inspire you to do many great things."
Instead of quoting a single experience, he talked about how mistakes are an unavoidable part of our lives, and that when we tread on a new path, mistakes are inevitable.
Mark, during the conversation, said that building a startup wasn't easy if one wasn't passionate about the work and thereby for changing the world. This passion for making the world better by connecting it had kept himself moving in the direction of Facebook.
Mark Zuckerberg aptly suggested those building a startup, to not think of the big businesses around the world and focus on their own startup. Big, it will become one day.
