About Mike Hoefflinger

Mike Hoefflinger

After leaving a career at Intel which included being Andy Grove's TA, Mike Hoefflinger became a Facebook insider. A computer engineer turned marketing innovator who worked with COO Sheryl Sandberg, Hoefflinger had a front-row seat to the company’s growing pains, stumbles, and reinventions.

After leaving Facebook in 2015, Mike wasn't just satisfied with becoming an entrepreneur-in-residence at XSeed Capital. He had a story to tell. Becoming Facebook tells the coming-of-age story of the now venerable giant. Filled with insights and anecdotes from crises averted and challenges solved, the book tracks the company’s development, uncovering lessons learned on its way to greatness.

Mike has been featured on Bloomberg TV, Bloomberg Businessweek, SiriusXM, Forbes, the Huffington Post, Business Insider, Investors Business Daily, Recode, TechCrunch, VentureBeat, CEOWorld, Cheddar TV, KGO Radio and many others
