This week is the biggest week of Mark Zuckerberg’s life and most of us are already aware of that. The week has started off with his birthday, which is today, turning him 28. Later on in the week, we will all see Facebook’s initial public offering and undoubtedly, this week is the biggest week of Mark’s life.
Facebook will start trading and sell stock to public for the first time on Friday, as it will be trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market. As a result of the IPO, the company might have a worth of $100 billion or even more and maybe less. However, with a worth of $100 billion, the 28 year old will have a company that is more in worth than iconic companies such as Kraft Foods, Disney and Ford.
Mark Zuckerberg may seem immature for all that he has already earned in life but don’t get fooled by his casual appearance or his humor side. At 28, he is half the age of the average CEO of S&P 500. Facebook has been around since eight years and with just so little time since its creation, Mark has led the company as a leader rather than a CEO.
However, things were different before as Facebook dealt with its own people and its own circle. Now, Facebook is going public; it is going to sell investors shares all over the world. Hedge funds, Wall Street investment firms and all others are going to be present there who are going to constantly pressure Mark.
Mark has already dealt with a lot in his Facebook venture; being sued by other people who claimed to be co-founders of the company, some other who claimed to have come up with the name Facebook and others and Mark has won the battle against them all. However, this is the biggest deal for Mark Zuckerberg, as at the end of the day, he might become the youngest and richest entrepreneur. However, strictly in terms of the company, things are going to embark on an entirely different and new journey now.
