CEO Secrets: Five tips from tech titans

How do you build a global digital brand from scratch like Instagram, Kickstarter or Wikipedia? What better way to find out, we thought, than to ask the founders who built these companies. For a few months now we've been asking the bosses who cross our paths at BBC News to share the advice they wish they had known when they started out, as part of our ongoing series CEO Secrets.
