Entrepreneurs explain why business should always be an adventure

Virgin Atlantic's Business is an Adventure series celebrates gutsy entrepreneurs disrupting the status quo, embracing global opportunities and doing business differently.

Their latest outing in the US saw the airline touchdown in Seattle, where Richard Branson convened a panel of local business leaders to discuss - among other things - why they were so keen to ensure adventure was a key part of their business plan.

The Virgin Group founder was joined by Nadia Shouraboura, Founder & CEO, Hointer; Jonathan Sposato, Angel Investor and CEO, PicMonkey; and Chase Jarvis, Founder & CEO, CreativeLive. As you might be able to tell, the panel debate strayed into some interesting topic areas...

"When I left Amazon, I opened my own store. Every asshole from Amazon would come into my store and they’d make fun of me. After a year of that, I decided ‘this is it, I’m going to step up’. And that’s what kept me going; the assholes," Nadia Shouraboura.

Their discussion has now be turned into an episode on Virgin Atlantic’s very own podcast series, The Venture, so click play to take a listen. To subscribe, head over to iTunes.
