Entrepreneurship has been defined as "The act of being an entrepreneur". Facebook's chief executive Mark Zuckerberg, can rightfully be labeled as a living legend who has added new dimensions to the word "entrepreneurship". The Company will be going public this week with the stocks trading on Nasdaq Stock Market for the first time. This news was surely one of the best gifts that he received on his 28th birthday.
There are many successful entrepreneurship sites that indulge in e-commerce transactions with online trading of products and services. For example, one can sell watches online by connecting with a global cliental on the click of a mouse button. Social networking websites like Twitter, Facebook, Orkut are all trend setting examples of people who have undertaken innovations, finance and business acumen and have reaped enormous results from their entrepreneurship ventures.
The success of Facebook can be measured by the $100 billion size of the IPO that can increase the value of Zuckerberg's social networking site to $100 billion. Comparatively speaking, this would position Facebook's worth higher than Disney, Kraft Foods and Ford.
Once the stocks of one of the most successful entrepreneurship venture in history start selling, a host of new stakeholders, including Wall Street Investment firms, pension funds and hedge funds will pressurize Mark Zuckerberg to keep moving the Company on the path of consistent growth.
Mark Zuckerberg may look youthful as he sports his hooded sweatshirt, but at 28 he has proved to be the most successful entrepreneur of the contemporary times.
