What are some of the costliest mistakes ever made in history? by Nirmal Kumar

Answer by Nirmal Kumar:

Back in August 2009 ex-Vice president of engineering of Yahoo walked into Facebook  for an interview. He was tragically rejected. He went home,  tweeted the rejection and went on with his life.  It took  Mark Zuckerberg almost $19 billion dollars to get him back to Facebook.

The man was Brian Acton and after rejected by Twitter and Facebook in a span of one month he went on to co-found the kingpin of cloud-based messaging services, WhatsApp.
