After shares of Facebook stock hit an all time high, founder Mark Zuckerberg is ready to tell his competitors that it’s not as bad as they think might. No fear, Mark. No fear.
Going public ain’t easy. And no tech company CEO of late knows that better than Mark Zuckerberg.
Perhaps Twitter, which is gearing up for its IPO to come early next year, could learn something from the social giant’s experience: Don’t be scared.
“I’ve been very outspoken about staying private as long as possible,” Zuckerberg said in an interview at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference on Wednesday. “But in retrospect, I was too afraid of going public. I don’t think it’s necessary to do that.”
