Abstract

If you go to Mark Zuckerberg’s facebook page, you’ll see that it says: “I’m trying to make the world a more open place.”1 It’s a grand mission for any person. But, of course, it is essentially the mission of his company. In Zuckerberg’s letter to shareholders in facebook’s initial public offering (IPO) prospectus, he says: “Facebook was not originally created to be a company. It was built to accomplish a social mission—to make the world more open and connected.”2 This is not the kind of mission you often associate with a company, but all great companies are about a cosmic vision, and that vision is always based on the power of a founder like Howard Schultz, Walt Disney, Henry Ford, Steve Jobs, and Bill Gates. They are more than just chief executive officers (CEOs). They are revolutionaries.
