1. Don't be afraid to take risks

"The biggest risk is not taking any risks … In a world that is changing very quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not to take risks."

2. Start early, even if you don't have a clear goal

“There is a way in the Valley to launch companies before realizing what you want to do. You have decided that you want to start a company, but you don’t even know what you are passionate about at the moment …”.

3. There is always room for new ideas

“Games, music, movies, TV, news, online shopping - all these models will be completely rethought in 5 years. Really good business ideas will emerge. We think we must play our part in this reform and get benefits proportional to what we put into it."

6. Hire a good team of professionals, even for good money

“One of the main things I've learned for myself since the founding of Facebook is that in order to achieve results, you need to create a good team of professionals who believe in the same mission and want to work on it. But at the same time, they also want to make good money"
