In quotes: Virgin Disruptors Silicon Valley

If there’s one thing we’ve learnt over the years, it’s that Richard Branson is rather good at handing out both succinct tips and cutting remarks. At our recent Virgin Disruptors debate he was joined by a few others who appear to have mastered the craft…

Megan Smith, Tony Fadell, Leila Janah and Jim Grubb – there’s no arguing that these guys know a thing or two about entrepreneurship and innovation. So what was your favourite quote from the debate? Maybe we haven’t included your pick, if so let us know below…

Some wisdom from the tie-loathing entrepreneur himself…

…don’t ask Tony to play by the rules, he just won’t do it…

...Google X’s Megan Smith had a few things to say on collaboration…

…while Samasource CEO Leila Janah had some strong views on tackling real world problems…

...it wasn’t long before the Virgin Founder answered the question on everyone’s lips…

…more talk of collaboration as Tony Fadell played down the importance of CEOs…

...more straight talking from Megan Smith…

…and then more emphasis on the importance of social entrepreneurship from Leila Janah…

...and last but not least, it’s Jim Grubb of Cisco.
