    Richard Branson biography

    From the Virgin empire to the edge of outer space, business speaker Richard Branson is the world’s most recognizable entrepreneur. Online, in print, or in person as a singularly magnetic keynote speaker, Richard Branson is a born storyteller.

    After starting Virgin in 1970 as a music retailer, Richard Branson also founded Virgin Records, and with it a business empire. His first artist, Mike Oldfield, recorded “Tubular Bells” in the studio Branson built just for Virgin. The Sex Pistols brought Virgin popularity and notoriety in 1977, helping it become the world’s largest independent label.

    Branson founded Virgin Atlantic in 1984, and built an extensive network of travel businesses around it. An entrepreneur at heart, Branson is the only person to found eight billion-dollar companies in eight different sectors.

    He may also be the world’s most social CEO. He has been voted the UK’s number one Twitter user, and his LinkedIn account is among the world’s most followed. His blog on addresses everything from entrepreneurship to sustainability to music and travel.

    Branson has been an accomplished philanthropist since age 17, when he started a student advisory centre at his school. More recently, he founded the non-profit foundation Virgin Unite, which advocates for business as a force for good. The Virgin Earth Challenge, established in 2007, offers a $25 million prize for sustainable, scalable solutions to climate change.

    Knighted in 1999 for services to entrepreneurship, Branson is fittingly the author of not one but two autobiographies. International bestseller Losing my Virginity looked back on 40 years as a business maverick and iconoclastic celebrity. Seven years later, Finding my Virginity tells the rest of the story, in light of Branson’s near-fatal 2016 bicycle crash.
