Learning Business From the Big Screen
The Social Network (2010)
Friends matter. He may be the world’s youngest billionaire, but Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg didn’t get to that point without making a few enemies along the way. From a Harvard dorm room to the courtroom, The Social Network film is based on the Facebook creator’s (played by Jesse Eisenberg) trials and triumphs as he builds the social network into the billion-dollar empire. Though the Zuckerberg and his early staff shrug the movie off as totally fictional, the saga does come with a valuable warning to young entrepreneurs about how easily fame and fortune can jeopardize personal relationships.
