Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is at the CoCreation Hub, Yaba, Lagos, Nigeria at this very moment.
He arrived this afternoon and is meeting with a few key players in the Nigerian tech world to discuss how Facebook can be improved in Nigeria, and how it can support tech development in Africa.
Here are 10 things we learnt from the Billionaire Business Guru's Question and Answer session with the key payers in the tech world.
- “Move fast and break things. Unless you are breaking stuff, you are not moving fast enough.”
- “The question I ask myself like almost every day is, ‘Am I doing the most important thing I could be doing?'”
- “People don’t care about what you say; they care about what you build.”
- “The biggest risk is not taking any risk.”
- “Simply put: we don’t build services to make money; we make money to build better services.”
- “I think a simple rule of business is, if you do the things that are easier first, then you can actually make a lot of progress.”
- “The Hacker Way is an approach to building that involves continuous improvement and iteration. Hackers believe that something can always be better, and that nothing is ever complete.”
- “We look for people who are passionate about something. In a way, it almost doesn’t matter what you’re passionate about.”
- “You are better off trying something and having it not work and learning from that than not doing anything at all.”
