Founder and chairman of Virgin, also often seen as a guru on entrepreneurship, and empowerment.


In the 1970's Virgin Records appeared in the UK, friendly record shops in every major city in the UK, selling vinyl records at affordable prices. From that point on, the only way was up for entrepreneur Richard Branson, who has broadened his business out into a recording company, megastores, an airline, trains, healthcare, and various other enterprises. Richard Branson has worked with various business partners to create the wonderful Virgin empire.

Despite being a major businessperson in the UK, Richard has always kept his sense of humour, and runs his enterprises with great originality. Virgin is probably best known for entertainment.
