most influential member of this network is PayPal Mafia. These
"Ex-Paypalers" have gone on to found several companies with the market
value of over $ 1 billion such as Youtube, Linkedin, Tesla Motors,
Palantir Technologies, SpaceX, Yelp and Yammer. Rather than to engage in
the fierce competition after their stints at Paypal, they regularly
invest in each other’s companies, provide each other support, and
publicly praise each other in the media.
"Ex-Paypalers" were humorously dubbed "PayPal Mafia” by Forbes
magazine and appeared in the magazine in 2007, dressed in costumes.
Stoppelman, ex-Paypal and founder of Yelp, the website that rates
restaurants and hotels, recalled about his former colleagues: "At Yelp,
every time we need to fund raise, Peter Thiel was the first I called for
advice. When it came to products or growth strategies, I would call Max
daily. To see the big picture, I often sought help from Keith.“Ex-

early pioneers of this informal network could be credited to Steve Jobs
and Boy Noyce. At the start of Steve Jobs’ career, he approached Bob
Noyce, Intel's CEO at the time. It is hard to imagine how the highly
respected Intel CEO could share his value experiences over a cup of
coffee with a long haired, hippie looking Steve Job. It was certainly
not because Noyce knew that Jobs would later to become one of the
world’s most admired CEOs, but it was in the spirit of sharing. Jobs
cold called Noyce and with his characteristic passion managed to
persuade Noyce to think: “Why not? Why not share to create a stronger
Silicon Valley. It is this spirit that lay the foundation for the Mafia
Networks in Silicon Valley today.
tech companies do not only consider the Mafia Network as a source of
pride, but also their significant competitive advantage. The network
allows them to quickly access new technologies, evaluate new ideas and
to attract talents. Leading leading technology companies not only spends
considerable effort to maintain and keep its "Mafia network” strong, but
they dedicate themselves to actively recruit new talents through various
channels, such as the Startup Competition (Entrepreneurship contest),
Marathon Programming contest (Hackathon), or Startup-in-Startup Program
(Entrepreneurs -in- Residence program).

the most successful startups globally, you can never see a 'one boss and
thousands of line workers' concept. To compete successfully in tech, one
brain is never enough. Rather, you must have hundreds, thousands of
exceptional brains cooperating, forming alliances, whether they are in
your company or outside. WIth such world-class talent, you cannot make
false promises, but must really create a opportunity for ownership,
freedom in decision making, development of skills and personal branding
for them. You must also be able help them build personal wealth, in a
clear, transparent way, before they create their own startups again. If
you do not have a strong alliance, you will lose in solitude. With many
allies, not only you will 'work hard' more successfully, but will also
'play hard' better." Dr. Truman Pham, Founder, Topica Edtech Group.
Many young people urge to startup right away, and whether it is a
success or failure is a valuable experience. Who has started several
times knows that what he lacks and needs how much time to practice. For

before startup, the program of 22CEO is designed for them.
