Tomorrow, in honour of his contribution to the world of entrepreneurship, the website are dedicating a whole weekend to his screw it, lets do it approach to business.
At age 63, the London-born founder of the Virgin Group empire still retains the vitality of the young daredevil who shook up the music industry with his record label in 1972. He is known as much for his death-defying stunts - he established records crossing the Atlantic in a boat and the Pacific in a hot-air balloon - as for his business acumen. His high tolerance for risk, both personally and professionally, has paid dividends, netting him a personal fortune of $4.6 billion, according to the most recent Forbes estimate, writes entrepreneur.com
Among world-class entrepreneurs, though, some are richer than Branson. A few, including Elon Musk, are as visionary. But no one else has the same boldness, the same willingness to bet the farm again and again. Apple's "Think Different" ads in England featured him alongside Einstein and Gandhi as a transformative figure of the 20th century.
