How India Helped Mark Zuckerberg To Stick To Facebook’s Mission

At a recent event with India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, last Sunday in California, Mark said:

“Early on in our history when things weren’t really going well – we had hit a tough patch and a lot of people wanted to buy Facebook – I went and I met with Steve Jobs and he said that to reconnect with what I believed was the mission of the company – I should go to visit this temple in India that he had gone to early in the evolution of Apple, when he was thinking about what he wanted his vision of the future to be”

On the late Apple CEO’s advice, Mark visited the temple in India and spent almost a month traveling around the country.

He says that the visit reinforced the confidence in him to rebuild Facebook into a multi-billion company.

 



Mark added:

 “The idea is before doing anything you should go to a temple.”

After getting inspiration from India, Mark rejected acquisition offers and built Facebook into one of the largest tech companies in the world.

In response to Mark’s story of his connection with India, PM Narendra Modi said:

“You did ask the question why there is a lot of optimism when people talk about India and what do I think about that. When you went to India you visited a temple with a lot of hopes, and look to where you have reached.”
